The Supervisory Board of Heidelberg appointed Dirk Kaliebe as deputy Chairman of the Management Board of the Company, because the recovery of the Chairman of the Management Board, Dr. Gerold Linzbach, is likely to be delayed longer than expected. In his new function, Dirk Kaliebe will take the Chair of the Management Board of Heidelberg as well as the functions of the Industrial Relations Director (Arbeitsdirektor) until the return of Dr. Linzbach. He will also present the report of the Management Board at this year’s Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on 24 July in Mannheim. The nature of Linzbach’s illness has not been announced.
Dirk Kaliebe studied economics at the University of Cologne, specializing in auditing, insurance business management and international taxation. He also has a degree in business administration. He joined Heidelberg in 1998. Since 2006 he has been a member of the Management Board, responsible for finance.
