Hamburg | Tuesday, September 26, 2017
Rainer Verhoeven will assume the role of Chief Financial Officer of the Aurubis Group on January 1, 2018. The Supervisory Board has initially appointed the new board member for three years, as is customary.
Upon joining the company, Rainer Verhoeven, 48, will take over the office of the board member responsible for finance, which as an interim measure has been managed by Chairman of the Board Jürgen Schachler since the onset of Erwin Faust’s illness and subsequent resignation on June 30 of this year.
“With Mr. Verhoeven, we have gained a well-versed manager who has a wealth of corporate experience at his disposal, also outside of Europe,” explains Prof. Dr. Heinz Jörg Fuhrmann, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Aurubis AG, about the decision.
His expertise, which not only extends over all core business disciplines, will provide significant impetus for Aurubis’ growth and performance.
Rainer Verhoeven first completed an apprenticeship as a banker and subsequently studied International Management in Germany and the Netherlands. In 1996, he embarked on his industrial career in the present-day thyssenkrupp Group. He began in the financial sector and after some years changed to corporate accounting. He later assumed positions of responsibility within the Group, among them in the United States and Brazil. Since the end of 2014 he has held the position of Chief Financial Officer for thyssenkrupp Electrical Steel GmbH in Gelsenkirchen.
