APK Chairman of the Board Klaus Wohnig resigns

Wohnig leaves the company for personal reasons, Dr Robert Marx becomes new board member and CTO.


APK AG, Merseburg, has announced that Wohnig has resigned from his position as chairman of the company's executive board for personal reasons. A successor has not yet been named. His areas of corporate development, business development and sales will be taken over by CFO Susanne Küppers, who only joined the company at the beginning of 2022. The Executive Board will be strengthened on 1 December with Dr Rainer Marx as the future CTO, who will be responsible for R&D, production and project development. Marx comes from Clariant AG and, according to APK, has a lot of experience in the areas of research & development, strategy, production, project development and sales.


Wohnig deeply regrets that there is currently no alternative course of action for him, and he wishes the future very competent management duo Susanne Küppers and Robert Marx maximum success in implementing the company's goals in a phase of expansion. To this end, he was handing over a well-prepared company, Wohnig said.
