Andreas Joehle has joined the management board of Paul Hartmann AG with the intention of assuming the role of CEO in July 2013. He will succeed Rinaldo Riguzzi, who has announced his retirement after heading the German hygiene company for nine years.
“We are pleased to have recruited Andreas Joehle, a competent, internationally experienced leader, with whom we will be able to continue the extremely successfully shaped, positive development of the Hartmann,” states Fritz-Jürgen Heckmann, chairman of the supervisory board of Paul Hartmann.
Prior to his role at Hartmann, Joehle served as president for the Surgical Division at Mölnlycke Health Care Group and has previously held executive roles at 3M, Coloplast and Medtronic International.
Riguzzi will be put forward as a candidate for election onto the supervisory board as an ordinary member after his resignation from the management board.
