Dr. Jürgen Dambrowski to succeed Michael Ostwald as CFO of WKN AG
Dr. Jürgen Dambrowski was born in 1954 and is currently CFO of the Paper business area of SURTECO SE and brings extensive finance experience with him. He holds a doctorate degree in business administration and held over a twenty year period various senior management positions at Robert Bosch GmbH in Germany and abroad. Between 2005 and 2007, Dambrowski worked as CEO and CFO of the companies Index Werke and Traub Drehmaschinen. After working for two years as a Senior Executive Consultant, he became CFO of the finance department of 2D Holding, which in December 2013 was sold to SURTECO SE.
Originally it was planned that Roland Stanze would assume the function of CFO after the departure of Michael Ostwald on July 1, 2014. But due to many different aspects and the ever changing market conditions, the decision was taken to concentrate the areas of Purchasing, Sales, Project Financing and Strategic partnerships in a separate board function.
