As planned, Dr. Johannes Schmidt-Schultes took up his position as Group Chief Financial Officer on September 01, 2022. He has thus taken over the finance department from Dr. Andreas Prüfer, who had been responsible for this area on an interim basis since mid-May of this year until a new member was appointed to the Management Board.
Torsten Pötzsch, Delticom AG’s Chief Marketing and Sales Officer, will resign from his position as a member of the Managing Board at his own request on September 30, 2022 in order to take on new professional challenges. The resignation is by mutual agreement with the company’s Supervisory Board.
Mr. Pötzsch explains: “I am pleased that Delticom is on the right track. I wish the company and all employees all the best for the future.”
Alexander Gebler, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, commented on the resignation as follows: “Mr. Pötzsch has played an important role in Delticom’s successful development and has driven forward significant developments for the company. On behalf of all members of Delticom AG’s Supervisory Board, I would like to sincerely thank him for his commitment and wish him all the best and much success for the future.”
Dr. Andreas Prüfer, CEO of Delticom AG, will take over the Marketing and Sales division as an additional department and thus the function of CSO. Mr. Prüfer has already been responsible for this core area of Delticom AG in the past. The marketing and sales strategy introduced by Mr. Pötzsch is to be continued in essence and with focus.
