Roth & Rau has appointed new members to its supervisory board, replacing the previous board who concluded their term in office last week. At the company’s Annual General Meeting, shareholders chose to elect Michel Hirschi, Andrea Sieber and Peter M. Wagner, with Wagner appointed as chairman of the board.
Wagner is president of Meyer Burger Technology’s administrative board and Hirschi is the company’s chief financial officer. Their appointment comes shortly after the takeover of Roth & Rau by Meyer Burger, a move that has left the Swiss solar equipment manufacturer with an 81.89% stake in its German rival. Sieber is a partner in meyerlustenberger Rechtsanwälte, a Zurich-based law firm.
“We would like to thank the shareholders in Roth & Rau AG for the trust they have placed in us,” said Wagner on behalf of Roth & Rau’s supervisory board. “We are delighted to be able to accompany the integration of Roth & Rau AG into the Meyer Burger Group, as well as the company's resultant further strategic development.”
