Vienna – Semperit AG Holding has announced the election of Peter Edelmann as the new chairman of its supervisory board.
The CEO of B & C Group – majority stakeholder in publicly-listed Semperit – was elected as successor to Christoph Kollatz, following the group’s 130th AGM.
In March, Semperit announced that Kollatz and Christoph Trentini would resign from the Supervisory Board at the meeting “to devote themselves to other tasks.”
At the same meeting, Birgit Noggler and Patrick Prügger, CFO of B & C Group, were also newly elected to the board, Semperit announced 8 May.
Noggler takes over the chairmanship of the audit committee of Semperit AG Holding, though the statement did not include details of Prügger’s role.
