We are very pleased to announce our new management structure. After 40 years, Mr. Karl Steiner will pass on the management of SKS AG to his successor this year. Ms. Valerie Steiner will become the new CEO from July 2021.
We are convinced that with the new organization we can guarantee a successful takeover. The primary goal is that we continue the company SKS AG in a similar style and with the same philosophy as it was built up and lived by Karl Steiner.
Our management has consisted of Karl, Valerie, Michael and Lilian Steiner together with Christoph Weber, the operations manager, for quite some time. As of January 1, 2021, Ms. Valerie Steiner assumed the role of Deputy CEO. She will continue to be the overall head of finance, human resources and the administration department. Valerie Steiner will take over the management of SKS AG from 1 July 2021. Furthermore, as of January 1, 2021, Mr. Roger Zweifel was newly integrated into the Executive Board in the position of Head of Production Engineering. Michael and Lilian Steiner will retain their responsibilities as Head of Toolmaking and Head of Sales respectively.
Karl Steiner will remain as CEO until June 30, 2021. He will then withdraw completely from the operational business, but will remain with SKS AG as Chairman of the Board of Directors in an advisory capacity with his extensive experience.
We are convinced that with this expanded management team, SKS AG can continue to operate in a similar style and with the same philosophy that Karl Steiner established and lives by today. The primary goal is to maintain our good relationships with our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.
Thank you very much and best regards
The Steiner family
