BASF SE has reduced the size of the company’s board of executive directors from seven to six members, as part of ‘ongoing efficiency measures’, the company said.

Board member Sanjeev Gandhi, who was appointed to the board in December 2014 will reportedly leave the company at his own request.

The board now includes Dr Martin Brudermüller, Dr Hans-Ulrich Engel, Saori Dubourg, Michael Heinz, Dr Markus Kamieth and Wayne T Smith.
