After completing a trainee program at Bayer AG and his business studies at Essen University of Applied Sciences and the University of Bradford in England, Rockel began his career at LANXESS as a Business Development Manager in the Liquid Purification Technologies business unit.


Over his 23 years of service with the company, he has held a variety of roles, including Assistant to the LANXESS Board of Management, Marketing Manager for the former Butyl Rubber business unit, and regional director for the Asian business of the former Tire and Specialty Rubbers business unit.


In 2019, Rockel took on additional responsibility as the company's general manager for the production site in Wuxi, China. Working first in Singapore from 2010 and then in China since 2011, his deep understanding of the company and Asian and Chinese market dynamics makes him well-suited for the challenges and opportunities of his new role.
