Responsibility for the Services and Raw Materials Trading Segments passes to the Chairman of the Board of Directors
- Roland Stroese takes on new challenges in the consumer goods area
- Area of responsibility passes to Dr Axel Schweitzer effective January 1, 2011
Cologne (Interseroh). Roland Stroese (49), member of the INTERSEROH SE Board of Directors since October of 2005, has decided to resign membership effective December 31, 2010, to pursue new career opportunities. The INTERSEROH SE Supervisory Board has accepted his resignation with regret.
The responsibilities in the Board of Directors are being adjusted in consequence and the committee reduced in size. The Chairman of the Board, Dr Axel Schweitzer (41), will assume responsibility for the segments of Services and Raw Materials Trading starting on January 1, 2011. Joachim Wagner (43) will continue to be responsible for the Steel and Metals Recycling segment as a member of the INTERSEROH SE Board of Directors.
A six-member Management Committee, reporting directly to the Board of Directors, ensures a close connection between strategic management and the operational units. In this committee Eric Mendel (41), Chief Representative of INTERSEROH SE and Chairman of the management of INTERSEROH Dienstleistungs GmbH, will bear operational responsibility for the Services, Marketing and Sales division. Bernd Fricke (44), as of December 1, 2010 managing director of Interseroh’s subsidiary RDB plastics GmbH, is a new member covering the Raw Materials Trading division.
Roland Stroese moved from the management team of the confectionery manufacturer INTERSNACK onto the Board of Directors of INTERSEROH SE in October of 2005. He has been responsible for the Services and Raw Materials Trading segments and the Marketing and Sales divisions ever since.
Stroese has contributed significantly to the development of the Interseroh Group in these two segments. With the Dual System Interseroh operating domain, one of his responsibilities, the Company has grown into the second-largest systems service provider after the former monopolist. The task of differentiating business fields with greater precision and restructuring the segments that he took on has in the interim been completed for the most part.
Against this backdrop Roland Stroese will pursue new career opportunities after five-and-a-half years as a member of the Interseroh SE Board of Directors. “Interseroh has developed from a newcomer in the area of Dual Systems in 2004 to the second most important player in the market in an unbelievably short period of time,” remarks Roland Stroese. “Furthermore, now the Company is the only full-range supplier that combines the entire product range from innovative pool and recycling systems through international materials trading under one roof.” After five-and-a-half years, however, he feels that personally it is time to take on new professional challenges in a completely different field. “Interseroh has set the course properly for the future – it is now primarily the task of the operational units to advance along the road to success," Stroese explains.
The Supervisory Board and the Board of Directors wish to thank Roland Stroese for his work. Stroese can be singled out as having provided a significant contribution to the success of the Interseroh Group.
