Van Baarle began her career in the chemical industry in 2000, initially working at Royal DSM, according to Lanxess. She joined her current employer in 2011, where she held various management positions in sales and marketing in the then High Performance Elastomers and High Performance Materials divisions before moving on to central purchasing and logistics. The Dutchwoman studied business administration in her homeland, where she also received an MBA, and participated in executive training at French business school Insead, Lanxess said.
