The Supervisory Board of German press manufacturer Heidelberg has accepted the “amicable termination” of the company’s long-time CFO, Dirk Kaliebe, as of September 30th, 2019. Kaliebe had informed the Supervisory Board that he was not seeking to renew his current contract, which expires in the calendar year 2021. Kaliebe, 53, has been a member of the Management Board of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG since 2006 and is responsible for the OEM’s finances and financial services. “It was with great regret that we learned of Mr. Kaliebe’s decision,” said Supervisory Board Chairman Dr. Siegfried Jaschinski. At the same time, Jaschinski expressed his greatest appreciation for Kaliebe’s successful work – including the restructuring necessary due to the financial crisis of 2008, and the various re-financing measures in recent years for the realignment of the capital structure and Heidelberg’s reorientation as a digital enterprise. Following a sabbatical, Kaliebe intends to begin a new chapter in his professional life dedicating himself to new entrepreneurial challenges.
