Ad-hoc Announcement: Martin Brandt to reinforce the Management Board of Zumtobel AG
The Supervisory Board of Zumtobel AG has appointed Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing Martin Brandt to the Management Board with effect from 1 September 2009. This step is being taken in conjunction with the streamlining of Group structures that will unite the management of the existing holding company with the management of the Group's luminaire business. As a result, in addition to CEO Andreas Ludwig and CFO Thomas Spitzenpfeil, the Management Board of Zumtobel AG will comprise a third member. As Chief Operating Officer (COO), Martin Brandt, who holds a degree in industrial engineering, will be responsible for marketing, sales (except overseas regions) and operations for the Group's luminaire brands.
In his career to date in various management positions in industry (security engineering) and consulting, Martin Brandt has acquired wide-ranging experience in the fields of corporate development, construction-related projects, growth strategies and emerging markets. He is also noted for his strong affinity with innovation and technology and his extensive international experience.
