Peter Sürken

Mr. Sürken held various management positions in the chemical industry, among others in the US, the Netherlands and Italy. His India expertise results from his longstanding stay in India as a Managing Director of Degussa India Pvt. Ltd. (today's Evonik India). His responsibility consisted of the set-up of subsidiaries in India and the strategic management of the Degussa business for the entire region "South Asia".

"By being capable of comparing India with our experiences made in other countries, we make sure not to become 'India-blind'."

Peter Sürken worked for the WB Group as an expert in crisis management and special projects from 2004 to 2012, before he joined the Advisory Board of WB.
