Covestro: Dreier becomes new CTO

Dr. Thorsten Dreier has been unanimously appointed as the new Chief Technology Officer by Covestro's Supervisory Board.

Effective July 1, 2023, Dreier will take over from Dr. Klaus Schäfer, who recently extended his expiring contract by six months to ensure personnel stability for Covestro in a tense energy policy market situation, according to reports. According to the Supervisory Board, Dreier is an ideal successor as Chief Technology Officer and is expected to continue successfully driving Covestro's transformation toward a circular economy and climate neutrality. The 49-year-old joined the Bayer Group in 2002 and currently works as Head of "Coatings & Adhesives" at Covestro. "Dr. Thorsten Dreier has demonstrated his technological expertise, customer focus, market orientation and management qualities in our company for twenty years with great success. He has thus had a decisive impact on Covestro's development," said Dr. Richard Pott, Chairman of Covestro's Supervisory Board, on Dreier's election.
