As of March 1, 2017, Mark von Laer will be heading the Andritz AG (Austria) Controlling, Treasury, Order and Project Financing, Legal, and Compliance group functions. As before, Wolfgang Leitner, president and CEO of Andritz, will be responsible for the Andritz Manufacturing, Information Technology, Human Resources, Internal Auditing, Investor Relations, and Corporate Communications group functions.

Born in 1969 and holder of an MBA from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Fla., USA, von Laer was most recently CFO at Lürssen Werft GmbH, Germany. In the course of his professional career, von Laer has held management positions with financial responsibility at Kraftanlagen Gruppe in Munich, Germany, and at Lurgi Group, and thus has been able to gather comprehensive know-how and expertise in project business.

Chairman of the Andritz Supervisory Board, Christian Nowotny, is very pleased that "Mark von Laer, a financial manager with a great deal of international experience in project business, is joining the Andritz Executive Board."
