Oct 15 2016 Read 887 Times

A change at the top for Analytik Jena AG (Germany): the board member responsible for Sales and Marketing, Ulrich Krauss, will become the company’s new Chief Executive Officer as of 1 October 2016. Klaus Berka, who founded Analytik Jena with two partners in April 1990 and has led the company ever since, will become a member of the Supervisory Board as of 1 April 2017. Until then, he will be responsible for Innovation on the Executive Board.

Ulrich Krauss (52) has been a member of Analytik Jena’s Executive Board since November 2015. He brings more than two decades of experience in various international management positions at the Carl Zeiss Group. Additional members of the Executive Board are Grit Petzholdt-Gühne (HR) and Dr Peter Juschitz (Manufacturing, Purchase and Logistics).

The succession plan, supported by Endress+Hauser, was initiated back in the fall of 2015 to provide a smooth transition for the planned departure of the company founder. “We want to continue to develop Analytik Jena under the Endress+Hauser umbrella in the long term. Mr Berka has successfully built up the company over a period of many years. On this basis, Mr Krauss is well positioned to lead the company into a successful future,” said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group.  

Swiss measurement and automation engineering specialist Endress+Hauser completed the takeover of German analytical instrumentation and bioanalytical systems provider Analytik Jena in March 2016. The goal of the acquisition is to eventually be at the side of both companies’ customers from lab to process, giving support from product development to production. Analytik Jena employs some 1,100 staff worldwide.
