The Supervisory Board of Zeppelin GmbH re-confirmed CFO Christian Dummler in office for an additional five-year term in its meeting on April 2, 2020.
With the new business distribution plan for the Management Board of the Zeppelin Group, effective since January 1st, 2020, Mr. Dummler will continue to be responsible for finance, controlling, real estate management and law as well as for the newly created Corporate Social Responsibility department. He has also assumed responsibility for the Power Systems strategic business unit.
Andreas Brand, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Zeppelin GmbH, welcomes the contract extension: “In Christian Dummler we have a very experienced CFO at the top of the Zeppelin Group. He drives essential innovation, especially when it comes to finance, e.g. when Zeppelin switched to the international accounting standard IFRS in the financial year 2018. The contract extension underlines our recognition of his high level of commitment, and we consider this step to be a sustainable safeguard for our foundation-owned company, whose financial situation – thanks to Mr. Dummler – is a very good and diversified one”.

By taking over new service and distribution areas in Northern Europe, we have more than 10,000 employees worldwide by now. The Group is of considerable size and this requires sustainable finance and investment strategies, in order to keep our growth on a solid financial footing. It is a pleasure and an honor for me to be able to continue working successfully with my colleagues over the next few years. I thank the Supervisory Board and the shareholder for their trust."
