New Leadership at Gerresheimer
Dietmar Siemssen Takes Over as CEO
Dietmar Siemssen (55) will join the Management Board of Gerresheimer AG, Duesseldorf, Germany, as Chief Executive Officer on November 1, 2018. Speaker of the Management Board and CFO Rainer Beaujean has informed the Supervisory Board that he will not serve the additional three-year term of office offered to him by the Supervisory Board.
Dietmar Siemssen joined international automotive supplier Stabilus as CEO in 2011. Mr. Siemssen led the company out of the crisis and put it on track for growth. Under his management, the company transitioned from a component manufacturer into a systems supplier. Its operations expanded internationally, particularly in North America and Asia, and the portfolio was diversified beyond the automotive industry. Previously, Siemssen spent 19 years with Continental in various senior management positions in Germany and abroad, including in Asia.
“By bringing Dietmar Siemssen on board, we have gained a seasoned manager with international experience to lead Gerresheimer AG for some time to come. He was instrumental in growing Stabilus’ business as well as successfully taking the company public and completing a major acquisition. I am confident that, under his leadership, Gerresheimer will continue on its current growth trajectory and effectively execute the strategic expansion plans underway,” explains Dr. Axel Herberg, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Gerresheimer AG.
