Dr Christoph Riemer has taken over as CEO of the group as of January 1, 2023, and will work alongside Chief Financial Officer Dietmar Clausen and Chief Operating Officer Dr Felix Grimm.

General Manager Operations Wolfgang Nowak left the company at his own request on December 31, 2022, to take on new professional challenges while Dr Martin Haberl, previously General Manager Sales & Marketing, left at the same time. He will remain with Zschimmer & Schwarz in an advisory capacity until fully retiring in mid-2023.

"With Wolfgang Nowak, Dr Martin Haberl and Dietmar Clausen at the head of Zschimmer & Schwarz, the family business with a long tradition has grown strongly, opened up new sales markets and developed into a globally active supplier of chemical specialities and auxiliaries,” said Dr Bernd Reckmann, Chairman of the Advisory Board.
