• Germany-based equipment maker Manz AG has announced the dismissal of its CFO Gunnar Voss von Dahlen
  • After only less than a year with Manz, Dahlen has left his role with immediate effect
  • Management said divergent opinions about the company’s future strategic forced their hand
  • Until a new CFO is found, the duties and responsibilities of the position will be handled by CEO Eckhard Hörner-Marass and COO Martin Drasch

Germany’s semiconductor, solar and storage production equipment maker Manz AG has announced that it has parted ways with its CFO, Gunnar Voss von Dahlen, with immediate effect. Without divulging any additional details, the management said “divergent opinions about the company’s strategic direction in the future” were the reason behind this move.

The supervisory and management board wished Dahlen, who had been with Manz since June 2017, all the best for the future. Dahlen had replaced Martin Hipp, who left the company after 14 years last year. Dahlen came to Manz from Heidelberg Group, where he was working as the Segment Financial Officer (see New CFO For Manz). At Manz, he was responsible for finance and controlling, human resources, IT, organization, administration, investor relations and legal affairs.

The company plans to fill the position vacated by Dahlen. Until that time, CEO Eckhard Hörner-Marass and the COO Martin Drasch will assume the duties and responsibilities of the CFO.
