Gurit says that Andreas Evertz has been nominated as a member of its board of directors.

Evertz has been the CEO of wind turbine systems supplier Flender since 2020, with previous roles as CEO and president of Schenck Process Holding GmbH, Sandvik Machining Solutions and Walter AG.

He could join the board of directors following the departure of Peter Leupp, current chairman of the board.

“With his track record in globally active industrial companies, Andreas Evertz would be a welcome addition to and perfect fit for the Board,” says Leupp. “His professional and academic achievements align well with our strategic direction. His experience and knowledge in the wind industry will strengthen our current wind market position.”
