Umicore announces that An Steegen, Chief Technology Officer and member of the Management Board, will leave the company on 30 September 2021 to become co-CEO of Barco, a technology company listed in Belgium. The succession of An Steegen will be announced at a later date. 

Umicore’s CEO Marc Grynberg said : “An has been a key contributor to our Management Board since she joined the company in 2018 and I would like to thank her for her contribution and engagement. She has helped us shape our technology and sustainability roadmaps and position Umicore well for mid- and long-term developments. While I regret to see An leave, I am sure that she will also thrive in her new role and I wish her every success.” 

An Steegen commented: “I am very grateful for the wonderful journey at Umicore, for all the great people I have worked with and for what we have accomplished together. The decision to leave Umicore has not been easy and I would like to thank Marc, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board for their trust and support in the past 3 years.”
