Home > Press > SUSS MicroTec AG: Christian Schubert Appointed as New Member of the Management Board

Abstract:
SUSS MicroTec AG (FWB:SMH)(GER:SMH) has appointed Christian Schubert as a new Member of the Board. He thus succeeds Dr. Stefan Schneidewind, who was relieved by the Supervisory Board on October 2, 2008 due to differing views regarding the future strategic orientation of the company. Schubert brings to the table extensive experience from his positions with companies in the fields of electrical engineering, electronics and automotive technology. He has held managing director and management board positions at the high-tech companies Kontron, congatec and most recently Intica Systems. His range of competence therefore extends from business units with 3,500 employees within a conglomerate, to medium-sized structures with 300 employees, to experience within a dynamic start-up company. Schubert's area of responsibility will correspond basically to that of a COO. His main areas of responsibility will be in Operations, Structures and Processes. Schubert will take over the Management Board role on an interim basis. Over the medium term, the Management Board team is to be supplemented by a Board member with a technical background.

SUSS MicroTec AG: Christian Schubert Appointed as New Member of the Management Board

MUNICH, Germany | Posted on October 6th, 2008

Christian Schubert: "Based on indications within the industry and general economic conditions, we must take the approach of intensifying our operations. Considering our excellent order backlog, our job should be to examine all of the processes within the company and make them significantly more dynamic. The Management Board and Supervisory Board aim to navigate SUSS MicroTec on the overall weakening market from a strong market and technology position. By accelerating our structures and optimizing processes today, we hope to profit to the fullest extent from a subsequent market recovery."

The underlying strategic orientation of the company shall be maintained, as SUSS MicroTec aims its products toward the MEMS and advanced packaging applications markets as well as 3D integration and compound semiconductors (LED) - the areas that presumably have the greatest growth rates in the entire semiconductor market. The most urgent goal, however, will be to become faster and more effective within these markets.
