Professor Dr Jörg Sennheiser to hand over chairmanship

Published: MEA

WORLD: Professor Dr Jörg Sennheiser is to hand over the chairmanship of Sennheiser’s supervisory board as of January 1st 2015. He will be replaced by Dr Frank Heinricht. Dr Heinricht has been chairman of the board of management of Schott AG since 2013 and became a member of the supervisory board of Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG five years ago.

‘Dr Heinricht has a profound technical expertise and brings experience in managing large family-owned companies to his new role. We are very happy that he is taking over as chairman of the supervisory board of the Sennheiser Group,’ said Daniel and Andreas Sennheiser, CEOs and shareholders of Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG.

‘My goal has always been to pass a healthy, thriving company on to the next generation. The company’s independence is our most precious asset,’ said Jörg Sennheiser. ‘The family is committed to pursuing its strategy without any influence from third parties, a strategy that focuses on absolute customer orientation, technical innovation and first-class quality. This is an aim I have always pursued, and it is the basis of the decades of success that we have enjoyed and will enjoy in the future.’

Since joining the family-owned company in 1976, Dr Sennheiser’s contribution has been instrumental to its success. He became Sennheiser’s director of technology in 1976 before taking over management of the family business as executive shareholder in 1982. During his time at the helm, Sennheiser set up new manufacturing facilities in Ireland and the USA, while at the same time expanding production in Germany. In addition, Sennheiser internationalised its sales organisation during this time. As a result of this strategy, Sennheiser today has over 2,500 employees across the globe and is active in more than 60 countries.
