Stefan Kampmann, 52, assumed the newly-created role of Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Osram on July 1. Simultaneously, Klaus Patzak, 51, stepped down from his position as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). In addition to his regular duties, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Olaf Berlien, 53, will temporarily also assume responsibility for Finance until a new CFO has been appointed. This appointment will take place shortly.
“We welcome Stefan Kampmann to our team and look forward to the impulses he can provide for crucial research and development activities at Osram. In light of our evolution to a high-tech company, the R&D area is growing steadily in importance,” says Peter Bauer, chairman of the supervisory board of OSRAM Licht AG.
On the departure of the CFO, by best mutual agreement, Bauer adds: “Klaus Patzak made great contributions during Osram’s transition to becoming an independent company as well as during the subsequent listing on the stock exchange. He also played an important role in boosting productivity at Osram. We thank Klaus Patzak for all his work for the company and wish him the very best for the future.”
