Bucher will assume the role from October 1st and replaces Roland Waibel, who has opted to take retirement.

Bucher joins Archroma from Alpiq Holding, where he has been group chief financial officer and a member of the executive management board since 2015. 

Prior to this, Bucher was group chief financial officer at Gategroup for six years, a role in which he supported the company’s listing and subsequent strategic repositioning.

In addition, he held a number of senior finance roles at Ciba Specialty Chemicals during a 12-year spell with the business.

“I am very excited to join Archroma and a team who has shown amazing agility and market relevance in the recent years,” Bucher says, adding: “Transforming itself to operate ever more efficiently, profitably and sustainably.”

Archroma chief executive Heike van de Kerkhof adds: “We are very happy to have Thomas join us, and add his financial expertise to support our agenda towards confirming Archroma as an undisputed leader in innovative and sustainable specialty chemicals, supported by solid and profitable growth.

“I want to thank Roland for his many contributions since the beginning of Archroma in 2013. He has played an important role helping the company deliver on our growth whilst building a strong finance expert team and expertise at Archroma.”
