The supervisory board of Koenig & Bauer (KBA) has elected Heinz-Joachim Neubürger as its new chairman. This follows the resignation of Dieter Rampl on Sept. 26 as both longstanding member and, since 2006, chairman of the world’s second-largest press manufacturer’s supervisory board, due to personal reasons. Neubürger, former CFO at Siemens, was elected as member of the KBA supervisory board at the annual general meeting in June 2013.
The shareholder representatives will propose Dr. Martin Hoyos to the register court in Würzburg, Germany, as a replacement following Dieter Rampl’s resignation as supervisory board member. Hoyos, an experienced auditor, is a former member of the board of directors at KPMG Germany, and holds diverse supervisory board seats at medium-sized companies.
