Solvay Names Karim Hajjar to Succeed CFO Bernard de Laguiche

Posted: August 7, 2013

Solvay has named Karim Hajjar to succeed Bernard de Laguiche as CFO and join Solvay’s executive committee on October 1. 

Citing his wishes to pursue his personal interests in Brazil, de Laguiche, a Brazilian and French national, has decided to end his 26-year career at Solvay during which he spent seven years as group CFO. 

“I am glad to still be part of Solvay and to be able to contribute to the group’s development as a non-executive board member while at the same time making a new start in Brazil,” said de Laguiche.

Before joining Solvay, Hajjar, who is a British national, was director finance and planning at Imperial Tobacco Group Plc.
