Heidelberg has confirmed that Marcus Wassenberg, CFO and Labour Director, is expected to leave the company on 1 April 2023 and join the board of another industrial company.
In the period until his actual departure, Wassenberg (pictured left) will work with the Supervisory Board and the Chief Executive Officer to ensure an orderly transition of his duties and responsibilities into new hands. The Supervisory Board plans to fill the position quickly.
“Over the past three years, Marcus Wassenberg has done effective work both in restructuring the company and in driving forward the transformation. His imminent departure is also an expression of the milestones achieved, the financial successes achieved and the regained future viability of Heidelberg. We thank him for his important contributions,” says Dr Martin Sonnenschein, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG.
“In Marcus Wassenberg, we are losing a committed innovator and I am losing a valued Board colleague,” adds Dr Ludwin Monz, Chairman of the Management Board. “Despite the unexpected challenges of the pandemic and the current uncertain geopolitical situation, he and his colleagues have restored the company’s robust economic performance. We will now continue unwaveringly with the strategic development of our portfolio and business model innovation. This is what our Supervisory Board, the management team and I stand for together. The future of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG is spread across many strong shoulders.”
