Stefan Grote joins the firm on 1 April

Stefan Grote is joining the Gerresheimer management board on 1 April, taking responsibility for the Tubular Glass and Life Science Research divisions and takes over from Max Raster, who is leaving the company.

Grote is currently a member of the managing board of Tesa, a subsidiary of Beiersdorf, where he has headed the consumer business unit since 2007. Prior to that, between 2005 and 2007, he was head of the industry division at the Nordmilch commercial dairy.

Max Raster, currently head of the Tubular Glass and Life Science Research divisions, has agreed with the Gerresheimer supervisory board on the cancellation of his contract as of 30 April.

‘Differences in opinion on the divisions’ future business strategy led to this consensual decision,’ said supervisory board chairman Gerhard Schulze. ‘On behalf of the supervisory board I would like sincerely to thank Dr Max Raster for the work he has done and wish him all the best in the future.’
