Wilhelm Plüster at Eppendorf Prize Award 2023

Eppendorf realignment: Wilhelm Plüster new spokesperson for management. CEOs leaving

The Hamburg headquartered life science company is realigning its Management Board structure and returns to having only one CEO. In addition, the Management Board will be expanded to include the position and function of a Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Previous Co-CEOs, Eva van Pelt and Peter Fruhstorfer end their joint collaboration, and Eppendorf is starting the search for a CEO. For the period of transition, the new Management Board consists of Chief Technology Officer Wilhelm Plüster (CTO), Chief Financial Officer Axel Jaeger (CFO) and the newly created position of a Chief Operating Officer (COO) which is filled by Dirk Loebermann beginning October 15. In addition to this function, he will be responsible for managing the programs to increase profitability and optimize the organization. Until further notice Wilhelm Plüster will take on the role as spokesperson for the Management Board.

The Supervisory Board would like to thank Eva van Pelt and Dr. Peter Fruhstorfer for their commitment and dedication. It wishes them all the best for their professional and private future.

With the realignment of the Management Board, the Supervisory Board is responding to the economic challenges that Eppendorf has to face and is setting the course to maintain the company's competitiveness. This requires reducing complexity, creating shorter decision-making processes, and enabling faster implementation.
