After receiving his PhD in organic chemistry from the University of Münster, Germany, Hans-Joachim Streitberger began his technical career at BASF Coatings in Münster. Following positions in cathodic electrocoating development and central paint research, he became director of the European research group. He led the technical automotive OEM group in Southfield, Michigan, USA, for three years, before returning to Münster in charge of the European technical groups for automotive OEM development and technical service. He later became vice president of a business group for industrial coatings with responsibility for Europe, during which time he was a member of the advisory board at BASF Coatings AG as well as head of the industrial business group of the German Paint Association, VdL. Dr. Streitberger's final position at BASF Coatings was head of Corporate Industrial Management before he became a self-employed consultant.

Karl-Friedrich Dössel studied chemistry in Kiel, Germany and Reading, UK, obtaining his PhD in physical chemistry in 1978. He joined the R&D department at Hoechst AG in the area of photoresist / microelectronic applications and became manager of coating resins R&D in 1992. In 1995 he was made Director of Technology for Automotive Coatings at Herberts, which later became DuPont, where he is currently the Director for Strategic Technology and Global Product Management. Dr. Dössel has global experience in the automotive industry as well as authoring over 100 patents, publications, and conference presentations in the field of automotive coatings.
