June 10, 2021: Umicore, the international materials and recycling group that also recycles lithium batteries, said Mathias Miedreich would take over from Marc Grynberg as CEO of the group in the last quarter of 2021.
Miedreich has a lot of experience in the automotive sector, much of it in clean mobility. He moves to Umicore from Faurecia, the French automotive technology group, where he has worked for eight years, latterly as executive vice president of the Clean Mobility division.
He has also worked for Siemens and Continental.
Grynberg will be nominated to the Supervisory Board in 2023, with ‘an appropriate interval so as to ensure the required autonomy of the new CEO’.
