Ciba Specialty Chemicals has recruited the European general counsel of Eastman Kodak to head its legal function in its Basle head office in Switzerland.
Thomas Koch joins Ciba as its new head of law and environment and as secretary to the board. He replaces Hans-Ulrich Müller, who is retiring. Müller joined Ciba in 1990.
