Wanda Smith has been appointed as Managing Director of Teknos Treffert Malaysia as of 14 June 2017. Wanda will be responsible for the Teknos operations in Malaysia and South-East Asia. She will have a key role in developing and managing the operation to support Teknos' growth plan in the Asian markets.
For the past 14 years Wanda has been responsible for the Group Corporate Affairs activities, ranging from legal administration including commercial contracts, people development, corporate communications, PR, CI/CD and marketing for the FEYCO TREFFERT Group. Her wide experience within corporate affairs, long experience in the coatings markets and multinational background are perfect combinations when taking over the new role as Managing Director.

Teknos completed the acquisition of Feyco Treffert, a company specializing in wood coatings in May 2017. The acquisition is an important part of Teknos’ growth strategy providing Teknos an access to new markets in Switzerland, Malaysia, and the USA, and strengthening its position in the wood segment globally.
“FEYCO TREFFERT Malaysia has been operating in Malaysia/South-East Asia since 1997 with steadfast growth and progress. 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”, says Wanda Smith, Managing Director of Teknos Treffert Malaysia.
