Teknos Treffert appoints a new Managing Director

Recently, Wanda Smith was appointed the new Managing Director of Teknos Treffert in Malaysia. She will be responsible for the company’s operations in Malaysia as well as Southeast Asia (SEA), and will also support Teknos with her key role in developing and managing operations in the Asian markets.

For the last 14 years, Wanda has been responsible for the Group Corporate Affairs activities that ranged from legal administration that included commercial contracts and corporate communications, among others, and marketing for the FEYCO TREFFERT Group, which Teknos acquired in May 2017 as part of their growth strategy to provide them access to new markets in Malaysia, Switzerland, and the United States (U.S.), while also strengthening their position in the global wood industry.

Her wide range of experiences in corporate affairs, and long experience in the coatings markets and multinational background is a combination of the role of Managing Director. Wanda reports to the Marcel Dissel, Strategic Business Director, Industrial Wood.

“FEYCO TREFFERT Malaysia has been operating in Malaysia/South East Asia since 1997 with steadfast growth and progress,” Wanda Smith said. “Now being part of the Teknos Group, we have great opportunities to expand further with an even broader product portfolio of interior and exterior industrial wood coatings. I look forward to take the business to the next level with my highly experienced and committed team.”
