Evonik is setting itself up for the digital future with its new subsidiary, Evonik Digital GmbH. Under the Evonik umbrella, the company is developing new digital business models and building up digital expertise. Christian Kullmann, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board and responsible for the digitalisation strategy, states: “Digitalisation offers more than new technologies. It also creates new opportunities for collaboration and production, and gives rise to new business models and marketing options. Evonik is taking a pioneering role in the chemical industry here.”
In the newly created position of Chief Digital Officer (CDO), Henrik Hahn will now coordinate digitalisation activities for the Group. This way a central contact point for technical dialog and strategic aspects as well as Group-wide digital innovations is established. Hahn is also Chairman of the Management Board of Evonik Digital GmbH.
