"I have come to the conclusion that an age of 65+ as well as more than 24 years of leading ESE are a good time to open a new chapter - for ESE, but also for myself personally. It has been a matter of heart for me to represent ESE and the whole team during all these years. Supporting our customers in many exciting projects with ESE's services has always been a great pleasure for me," says Klaus Janz. "I am proud of ESE and of the team in which so much competence meets so much commitment to the diverse technological tasks at our customers," Janz continued.
The previous Chief Operation Officer (COO) Priv.-Doz. Dr.-Ing. habil. Lars Schnieder is the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ESE with effect from 01 January 2022. As of February 01, 2022, he will represent ESE together with Paul Bethge, who will perform the duties of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) in personal union.
"We would like to thank Klaus Janz on behalf of all ESE employees - and as colleagues on the Executive Board expressly also personally - for the many years of trusting and friendly cooperation," says Lars Schnieder. And Paul Bethge adds: "To manage the company in a customer-oriented way in his spirit and to maintain the ESE culture of appreciation for our employees is both an incentive and an obligation for us".
