Markus Nikles Will Lead Meyer Burger Finances as New CFO

Meyer Burger Technology AG appointed Markus Nikles, the new CFO, to its executive board. He will be effective September 1. He will be responsible for finance, controlling, IT and risk management in Meyer Burger Group.

For more than 20 years, Nikles has gained prior experience within leading positions in the field of finance with the Swiss Bühler Group, working in Switzerland, the U.S., Germany and China. He is proficient in financial management in major international companies, including group and project control, liquidity planning, cash pooling, and management of net working capital.

“In Markus Nikles, we have been able to recruit a CFO with roots in Switzerland but who also has personal knowledge of the U.S., Germany and Asia,” says Franz Richter, chairman of the board of directors. “His extensive professional experience in an international industrial group, his in-depth expertise and his pragmatic attitude are very valuable assets with regard to the further growth phase of our company.”

The responsibilities of the new CFO will be shared by the other members on the executive board until he assumes his role. Nathalie Benedikt, the former CFO, resigned at the end March 2022 due to personal reasons.
