Dohle New Tognum Chaiman And CEO
Dr. Ulrich Dohle has been named chairman and chief executive officer of Tognum AG, effective July 1. He succeeds Joachim Coers, who is leaving after nine years at the company to pursue personal goals.
Dohle, who has served as deputy chairman since 2011, was unanimously elected by the Tognum Supervisory Board, which also extended his contract through the end of December 2015. Dohle joined the Tognum Executive Board with responsibility for Technology & Operations (CTO) in 2009, after spending many years at Robert Bosch GmbH in a variety of managerial, executive and international positions. In his new position he will be responsible for Research & Development and Quality Management, in addition to the typical duties and responsibilities of the CEO, such as strategy and corporate communications.
Jörg Schwitalla will succeed Dohle as CTO and head of Operations and Purchasing and will be responsible for the extended board Division of Operations, Integrity and Personnel. The company does not intend to appoint an additional Chief Technology Officer. Thus as a result of the new allocation of responsibilities, the Tognum Executive Board will be reduced from five to four board positions.
