Miguel Mantas has taken over the CEO position at specialty chemical company Allnex, effective Feb. 1, according to the company.

“He brings with him not only deep experience in our core business but also a wealth of experience as a global executive with a proven track record of delivering results for all stakeholders,” he added.

Extensive Experience

Mantas brings more than three decades of global executive experience in the chemicals and materials industry to the company.

A native of Portugal, Mantas launched his career with Hoechst AG in 1986, where he took on increasing levels of managerial responsibility for various business units and global regions, including Latin America, Asia as well as at the Hoechst corporate center in Germany.

In 1998, after the demerger of Hoechst’s industrial activities, Mantas went on to serve as vice president of sales for Celanese in EMEA before taking on management the company’s global engineering polymers and chemicals business units.

In 2007, Celanese divested its oxo chemicals business to Advent International and Mantas became managing director of the newly formed entity OXEA. Under his leadership, OXEA experienced a period of rapid growth and transformation by focusing on specialized oxo derivative segments.

After the 2013 sale of OXEA to Oman Oil, a wholly owned company of the Government of the Sultanate of Oman, Mantas retained his executive role with the company.
