Borealis, a leading provider of innovative solutions in the fields of polyolefins, base chemicals and fertilizers, announces the appointment of Anja Krusel as Vice President Group Controlling effective 1 May 2015. Anja Krusel succeeds Executive Board member Mark Tonkens, who assumed the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) as of 1 November 2014.
 
Anja Krusel joins Borealis from Munich-based Microsoft Germany, where she has held the position of Senior Director Finance and Administration since 2011. Before joining Microsoft’s second largest subsidiary, she spent nearly 15 years at the Philips Group, moving steadily up the ranks from Junior Controller in 1995 to Senior Finance Director at Philips Consumer Electronics in 2002, both positions based in Hamburg. She subsequently spent nearly four years in the US, serving as Senior Director Financial Planning & Analysis at Philips Consumer Electronics in Atlanta, Georgia and Senior Director Finance and Talent Management North America at Philips operations in Andover, Massachusetts.
 
A German native, Anja Krusel studied business administration in Cologne and Giessen. Together with her husband, she has now relocated to the Pinzgau area of Austria.
 
“We are pleased to welcome Anja Krusel on board,” says Mark Tonkens, Borealis CFO. “Borealis will benefit not only from her profound financial expertise, but also from the wealth of international experience and leadership skills gained in the course of her 20-year career.”
