Peter Gnägi will relinquish his current position as Head of the Business Group Spun Yarn Systems per end of 2013 at own request and stand down accordingly from the Rieter Executive Committee. At the request of Norbert Klapper he will provide support during 2014 in connection with strategically important projects.
