A. Kreimeyer on the Editorial Board of Angewandte Chemie
Stefan Marcinowski has left the Editorial Board of Angewandte Chemie at his own request, owing to a reallocation of duties on the Board of Executive Directors of BASF. The Board of the German Chemical Society (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker, GDCh) has chosen his colleague and BASF Research Executive Director Andreas Kreimeyer to be his successor.
Kreimeyer studied biology at the Universities of Hanover and Hamburg. After receiving his PhD under the supervision of H. Hilz (Institute of Physiological Chemistry) on ADP ribosylation associated with DNA repair in vivo, he joined the main laboratory of BASF in 1986. In 1993 he was made Personal Assistant to the Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors, and in 1995 he moved to Singapore. From 1998 to 2002 he led successively the divisions of fertilizers, dispersions, and functional polymers. On January 1, 2003 he was appointed to the Board of Executive Directors, and since 2006 he has also been Chairman of the Supervisory Board of BASF Coatings, Münster.
