DVS Technology Group Completes Executive Board Reshuffle
April 6, 2021
As of April 1, 2021, DVS Technology Group/DVS Technology AG will initially appoint Dr. Christoph Müller-Mederer to the executive board as Co-CEO. As of July 1, he will then take over the duties of the long-standing CEO Josef Preis. Following the departure from the board and the company of CEO Josef Preis and his fellow board member CSMO Bernd Rothenberger, as planned, and the appointment of CFO Stefan Menz and CTDO Mario Preis, which had already taken place beforehand, this completes a long-planned reshuffle of the management of the Hessian solution provider in mechanical engineering.
"Continuity and change" - these two words could stand as a motto over the change in the DVS Group management team, which has been well prepared for a long time. With CEO Josef Preis and CSMO Bernd Rothenberger, two personalities will leave the company in July who have shaped the group into the technological solution provider as which it presents itself today with international success. Both will remain associated with the group of companies in an advisory capacity after their active time. Following a three-month handover phase, Dr. Christoph Müller-Mederer will assume the role of CEO from this date and, together with CFO Stefan Menz and CTDO Mario Preis, will form the new, three-member executive board team.
With Müller-Mederer, someone takes the helm who combines both the classically technology-driven side of DVS Group and the recently increased focus on customer orientation and business aspects: the internationally experienced company leader has his academic roots in both mechanical engineering and economics and has shaped his professional career throughout the world of mechanical engineering.
"We are very happy to have found a successor in Christoph Müller-Mederer who understands both the rules of the game and the challenges of our industry very well, so he also recognizes the special opportunities that can be found in the current change. As a solution provider in Future Mobility, we thrive on our experience and technical know-how - but also on innovation, agility and customer focus. Our new CEO stands for both sides," says Dr. Steen Rothenberger, chairman of the supervisory board, about the selection criteria for the succession.
The focus of the new CEO's work will be on the further alignment of the DVS Group as a solution provider of future mobility with a particular emphasis on customer orientation, internationalization and digitalization.
