AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- AkzoNobel today announced that
Graeme Armstrong will become Managing Director

currently
Executive Committee member responsible for Research, Development, and

Armstrong will assume his new responsibilities on April 1 and will work
alongside Margevich during the first two months to ensure a smooth
transition. A
