The supervisory board of Klaus Faber AG has appointed Christian Reissner, MBA (47) to the board of Klaus Faber AG (as CFO) with effect from 1 May 2017.
He succeeds Reiner Zahm in this function, who is going into retirement and leaving the company on 30 April 2017. Reiner Zahm has been working for Klaus Faber AG for almost 40 years. Before his appointment to the board, he successfully managed the purchasing department. In this position, he ensured the growing variety and high availability of the products – the essential basis of the company concept. As a purchasing manager and later as a board member, he has continually helped to shape Klaus Faber AG’s road to success, and decisively informed the company. The supervisory board of Klaus Faber AG would like to thank Mr. Zahm for his many years of successful work in the management of the company.
Reiner Zahm will be succeeded by a well-rounded manager with Christian Reissner who previously, until this April, served the ALHO Holding Group, a Europe-wide supplier and manufacturer in the areas of system and module construction with around 1,000 employees, as a Chief Financial Officer/Vice President. Besides the strategic further development, his areas of responsibility there included the areas of accounting, controlling, treasury and group financing, amongst others, at six locations in Germany, France, Luxembourg and Switzerland. From 2009 to 2012, Reissner was Chief Financial Officer of the LISI Automotive Business Group Germany & Spain, a supplier of connecting elements in the automotive, healthcare and aeronautics industries. Before that he held various management positions at companies in the automotive and consulting industries around the world.
With Christian Reissner, Klaus Faber AG is gaining a particularly experienced practician for its top management. Klaus Faber AG will benefit from his experience in many different ways.
The board of directors is thus currently composed of Joachim Czabanski (CEO), Joachim Krimmel and Christian Reissner. The changed management team is aiming to ensure the continuity and further development of the operative business, as well as promoting company growth.
