Christian Benz takes over the chair of the managing board of Jetter AG with effect from 1 January 2014. He replaces company founder Martin Jetter, who is moving to the supervisory board. Plans are also in place to appoint Stefan Düring, head of Corporate Development at Bucher AG, as a member of the supervisory board. Dr. Michael Oltmanns will remain chairman of the supervisory board. Kurt Hauser and Theo Frank have declared their readiness to relinquish their mandates on the supervisory board.
"We have therefore completed the planned restructuring and changes at the top of the company," says Martin Jetter. "Christian Benz will continue to develop Jetter AG and further strengthen our competencies in the field of control and drive technology for industrial and mobile automation."
