"I am delighted that in Mr Walter we have appointed a qualified financial expert from our own company as Chief Financial Officer who knows RATIONAL very well. We are a special company and it is important to know these peculiarities," says Walter Kurtz, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of RATIONAL AG.
"With Mr Walter we can complete the Executive Board with a financial expert. Through his previous duties, also as head of Group Controlling, he is well acquainted with all the company divisions and projects," says Dr Peter Stadelmann, CEO of RATIONAL AG.
"I would like to thank Dr Stadelmann, who took over the assignment of CFO on an interim basis last year following the departure of his predecessor.
