Wind energy Nordex preparing for change of CEO

Nordex SE (ISIN: DE000A0D6554) is preparing for a change of CEO. The chief executive officer Thomas Richterich will be handing over responsibility to an as yet unnamed successor and will not renew his contract again, which will expire on June 30, 2012. As a result, Richterich will be leaving Nordex in his tenth year on the company’s Management Board. This step is motivated by personal reasons. The Supervisory Board respects this decision, which will facilitate early planning of the transition phase.

During the remaining months of his contract, Richterich will be working on important strategic projects aimed at aligning the Company to the changed market conditions. Consequently, the Management Board will be achieving a smooth transition to Richterich’s successor.

Nordex: More than 25 years of experience in the harnessing of wind energy

Few technologies have made so much progress in recent years as the use of wind energy. Nordex is one of the fathers of this development. After all, since 1985 Nordex have been setting standards with the development up to readiness for series production of ever larger and thus more economical wind turbines:
