The DPI Supervisory Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Eric Hogenboom as our Managing Director as of 1 August 2023.


Eric Hogenboom is a seasoned business leader and has worked for over 30 years in various national and international senior management positions at DSM and later SABIC. Next to this he was also president of the VNCI (Association for Dutch Chemical Industry) in 2015-2016. Because of his experience, he knows the polymer world inside out.

This, combined with his personal leadership skills and deep understanding of strategy, commercial and integrated business planning processes, makes him the right person to guide DPI.
