Friedrich Weninger is to become the new member of the management board at the same time. He currently is head of business unit Textile Fibers, the company's biggest business sector.

The new management board of Lenzing AG will therefore consist of Peter Untersperger (chairman), Christian Reisinger and Friedrich Weninger.

The chairman of Lenzing AG's supervisory board, Hermann Bell is pleased with the fact that a successor has been found so fast.
