New wind power Nordex CEO now on board

Dr. Jürgen Zeschky (51) commenced his duties as Chief Executive Officer of Nordex SE on 1 March 2012. The company’s Supervisory Board had previously appointed him to this position in November 2011. The vacancy in Nordex’s top-level management had arisen when his predecessor Thomas Richterich declared that he would not be renewing his contract again in summer 2012.

With a doctorate degree in mechanical engineering, Zeschky had been head of the industrial division of Voith Turbo since 2003, a business segment which currently has revenues of around EUR 610 million and some 2,100 employees. “Dr. Zeschky has the necessary profile to continue advancing the strategy of returning to profitable growth which Nordex has adopted for 2012,” said Uwe Lüders, Chairman of Nordex SE’s Supervisory Board.
