LONDON (ICIS)--AkzoNobel’s supervisory board on Monday announced that CEO Ton Buchner will return to work on Friday, 7 December following a full recovery from fatigue.

On 18 September, the Netherlands-headquartered coatings and specialty chemicals group said Buchner was taking a temporary leave of absence because of the medical condition.

"It has obviously been a testing time for all of us, but now Ton is back as expected, leading the company forward and returning to business as usual," said Karel Vuursteen, chairman of the supervisory board.
