Ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LR
Samuel Künzli will step down as Feintool Chief Financial Officer and member of the executive board at the end of March 2024 to pursue a new challenge outside the company. Over the past three years, Samuel Künzli has played a significant role in the transformation of the Feintool Group, with a particular focus on Green Energy, leading to important achievements and milestones.
The board of directors and executive management team at the Feintool Group extend their gratitude to Samuel Künzli for the successful collaboration during his tenure and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. The succession process will commence immediately.
Alexander von Witzleben, Chairman of the Feintool Board of Directors, stated: “We regret that Samuel Künzli is leaving our company. As Chief Financial Officer, he played a key role in implementing our growth strategy and demonstrated a high level of expertise both in the acquisition and integration of Kienle + Spiess in the e-lamination business, as well as the successful divestment of the capital goods business. Additionally, his persuasive efforts as a liaison with the capital market have been valuable to Feintool.”
