BERLIN — Dr. Simone Bagel-Trah has been named chair of Henkel’s Supervisory Board and of the Shareholders’ Committee.
Bagel-Trah, a 40-year-old doctor of microbiology, will officially take the posts when 73-year-old Albrecht Woeste, who has held the positions since 1990, retires in September. Bagel-Trah is the great-great-granddaughter of company founder Fritz Henkel, and represents the fifth generation of the family to lead the company. She is currently a member of the Shareholders’ Committee and vice chairman of the Supervisory Board.
