After more than 25 years, the founders of Alcedis, Dr. Elke Heidrich-Lorsbach and Michael Lorsbach, will retire on 31 Dec 2020 from the operational business. This announcement was delivered during an internal staff meeting on 28 May 2020.
This was decided some time ago, in order for a well prepared and timely organisation of the successors and the repositioning of the management team. After the management team was strengthened in 2018 with the appointment of Hanno Härtlein, long-term employees Dr. Bernhard Remes and Alexander Heinz were granted power of attorney on 1 June 2020.
With this new constellation, all business areas continue to be represented and Alcedis is strongly positioned for the future and for advancing its own agenda. “We have deliberately placed this responsibility in the hands of our employees and clearly favor the replacement from our own ranks”, say the founders of Alcedis, “because this corresponds to a continuation of the company in the tradition of a family business, which is very important to both of us”.
However, both will continue to be available to Alcedis in the background, on an advisory board.
