Von Roll Hol­ding AG: CFO Ste­phan Kell­mann lea­ves Von Roll Group. Artur Lust suc­ceeds him.

Brei­ten­bach, Sep­tem­ber 6, 2017 — Ste­phan Kell­mann (53), the long­time CFO of the Von Roll Group, has deci­ded to lea­ve the com­pa­ny after the relo­ca­ti­on of the Group’s acti­vi­ties from Wädens­wil (Zurich) to the Swiss pro­duc­tion site in Brei­ten­bach (Solo­thurn). Effec­ti­ve Octo­ber 1, 2017, the Board of Direc­tors appoin­ted Artur Lust (35) as his successor.

Ste­phan Kell­mann suc­cess­ful­ly con­tri­bu­t­ed to the rest­ruc­tu­ring of the Von Roll Group in recent years with gre­at dedi­ca­ti­on and com­mit­ment. “The Board of Direc­tors would like to thank Ste­phan Kell­mann for his important con­tri­bu­ti­on to imple­men­ting our stra­te­gy. He has demons­tra­ted his excel­lent capa­bi­li­ties during a high­ly deman­ding com­pa­ny cycle,” says Dr. Peter Kalant­zis, Chair­man of the Board of Directors.

Artur Lust, who has been nomi­na­ted as his suc­ces­sor, has so far been respon­si­ble for cor­po­ra­te deve­lo­p­ment at Von Roll and has play­ed a key role in the suc­cess­ful rest­ruc­tu­ring of the Group over the past 18 months.

CEO Dr. Chris­ti­an Hen­ner­kes says, “I would like to express my thanks for the very good and suc­cess­ful col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with Ste­phan Kell­mann and I reg­ret that he will not con­ti­nue to car­ry on his duties after the shift of our ope­ra­ti­ons to Brei­ten­bach. At the same time, I am very plea­sed to have Artur Lust at my side, who­se finan­cial exper­ti­se and strong affi­ni­ty for the ope­ra­tio­nal busi­ness make him very well qua­li­fied to dri­ve for­ward fur­ther opti­miz­a­ti­on in all are­as of the com­pa­ny with the hig­hest pos­si­ble intensity.

Artur Lust holds a degree in busi­ness admi­nis­tra­ti­on and is a cer­ti­fied accoun­tant. He pre­vious­ly held various manage­ment posi­ti­ons in lis­ted com­pa­nies as well as in fami­ly-owned com­pa­nies. The Board of Direc­tors wis­hes him much suc­cess in his new position.
