Arne Dehn has been appointed CEO of Stemmer Imaging. Dehn will take over as CEO from Christof Zollitsch, who will resign from the company’s executive board at his own request.

Stemmer Imaging’s executive board will now be made up of Dehn, Martin Kersting (CTO) and Lars Böhrnsen (CFO).

Zollitsch will remain closely associated with the company in the capacity of a strategic consultant.

Zollitsch has been Stemmer Imaging’s co-shareholder and on the management team since 2001. He and Kersting took over running the company when Wilhelm Stemmer sold his shares in Stemmer Imaging to AL-KO in 2017.

Dehn will be responsible for corporate strategy and development, M&A, sales, marketing, purchasing and HR. He has more than 20 years of management experience in listed technology companies, most recently as a member of the executive board of the TKH Group technology group which, among other things, develops and distributes machine vision systems and solutions.

‘Stemmer Imaging has experienced considerable growth in recent years. Christof Zollitsch and his team have built a company with a solid foundation, an outstanding culture and the resources for continuous growth. Managing the next chapter in the company's history is a great pleasure and motivation for me,’ Dehn said.

Zollitsch commented: ‘I know that the company is in good hands with Arne Dehn. I wish him and all employees all the best, continued success, and that our more than 4,000 customers in Europe place the same trust in Arne Dehn that I personally enjoyed during my tenure as managing director or CEO.’
