Appointment to Advisory Board

Dr. Joachim Kreuzburg is the new Chairman of Ottobock’s Advisory Board

With effect from January 1st, 2015, Dr. Joachim Kreuzburg is acting as the new chairman of the Advisory Board of the Ottobock Group. Kreuzburg was appointed to this position - as successor for Berhard Schadeberg - by shareholders Professor Hans Georg Näder, Julia Näder and Georgia Näder.

Bernd Schadeberg had left the board in the summer of 2014 due to his intense commitment to the concerns of his family-owned business. Schadeberg will stay in close contact with the Näder family – not only as a long-time friend, but also as fixed size in the landscape of German medium-sized companies.

Asked about the appointment of Dr. Joachim Kreuzburg, Professor Hans Georg Näder states: “For many years Dr. Kreuzburg and I have been closely connected as friends and professionals. In my opinion his appointment is a considerable gain for our Advisory Board.” Next to Prof. Dr. Utz Claassen, business professional from Hannover and New York based investment banker Chad Floe, Dr. Joachim Kreuzburg has been a member of the advisory body since 2012.
