Tire recycling company Genan has appointed Poul Steen Rasmussen as new managing director and CEO as of September. Rasmussen was previously managing director for Glassolutions Scandinavia, which is part of the Saint-Gobain group. He has also served as CEO for Maxit A/S (Weber A/S).
Chairman of the board Peter Thorsen commented, “We are very pleased that a concentrated process has now been completed with the appointment of Poul. Poul has solid experience. His experience from the processing industry and in building long-term customer relations and developing new products has weighted highly.
“An important task for the new director is – in cooperation with the rest of the Genan management team – to continue recent focusing on building up the Genan group.”
“I look very much forward to taking on new challenges at Genan – and to cooperating with the Genan organization, the management team and the board of directors,” said Rasmussen.
“The fundamental idea of recycling good raw material and the company’s products contain great potential, but I am well aware that it will be a difficult task to build up a profitable corporation – and that this will not be accomplished short-term.”
