bystronicceoDec. 9, 2011 – Starting in January 2012, André Brütsch will be the new head of the Bystronic glass group succeeding Richard Jakob as CEO. Brütsch will therefore also become a member of the Conzzeta AG management group.

In his function as a member of the business unit management with the Bystronic Sheet Metal Processing Systems group, Brütsch has already been working for
the Conzzeta Group for seven years. He is a Swiss Graduate engineer. Currently, he is the operative manager of the
parent company Bystronic Laser in Niederönz, Switzerland, where he
has been managing the operations division of this business unit since
2008. His combination of experience both in this post and in respect of
his previous position with the mechanical engineering division of Georg
Fischer AG, Brütsch brings a wide range of managerial experience
to this role.

Jakob, who has managed the Bystronic glass group business since
the beginning of 2007, will be retiring from the CEO position. He will
however remain within the Bystronic glass group management. In future,
he will concentrate on special projects and the management of the global
sales and service subsidiaries.

An additional staff change within the Bystronic glass group will also
take effect from in January. Frank Scholz will be assuming
responsibility for the newly created position of chief marketing officer. In this capacity he will also become a member of the Bystronic
glass group management.
Scholz is a graduate computer scientist and doctor of engineering in mechanical engineering/production. He brings diverse
managerial skills in corporate groups to the position along with
previous years experience in owner-managed medium-sized companies. His
most recent position was that of managing director at a consulting
company in Shanghai.
