Giorgio Squinzi has been elected president of Cefic, the European Chemical Industry Council. He replaces Christian Jourquin, chief executive of Solvay, who has completed his two-year term.

Squinzi, a trained chemist with 40-year-plus industry experience, has led the Mapei Group since 1976, growing the Milan-based chemical producer to a multinational business with an annual turnover of €1.7 billion.

“I believe that chemical companies thrive when they adhere to three important pillars – innovation, globalisation and customer-focus,” said Squinzi, who is also president of Federchimica, Italy’s chemical industry trade federation and serves as vice president of Italian business group Confindustria.

He has also previously served as vice president of Cefic from 2006 to 2008.
