Lindt & Sprüngli has announced changes to its management and board of directors with the appointment of new CEO Adalbert Lechner.
The chocolate producer’s current CEO, Dieter Weisskop, will step down from the position but will be proposed as a new member of the company’s board in late April.
Lechner, the current CEO of Lindt & Sprüngli’s German subsidiary and member of the group management team, will be appointed as Weisskop’s successor.
Weisskopf commented: “Lindt & Sprüngli is in very good shape, so this is an ideal time to hand over the leadership to new hands. I look back with pride and much pleasure on my many years of service to the group and look forward to leading the company until towards the end of the year, continuing to accompany Lindt & Sprüngli as a member of the board of directors and devoting myself to new entrepreneurial activities.”
Lechner added: “I am very much looking forward to my new role as CEO of the group and would like to thank the board of directors for their trust. Dieter Weisskopf hands over the company to me in excellent shape and expectations for the future development are high. I am happy to accept this challenge, as I can rely on an outstanding management team.”
