In addition to Obendrauf and Kerkhof, the management board of Lenzing consists of chief executive officer Stefan Doboczky and chief technology officer Heiko Arnold.

In this way, they have helped secure the future of the Lenzing Group as a leading player when it comes to innovation, quality and sustainability along the entire value chain of the textile industry and the cosmetics and hygiene sectors,” said Hanno Bästlein, chairman of the supervisory board of Lenzing AG.

“We are very pleased that Obendrauf and Kerkhof will both be at the company’s disposal for a further term of office in order to continuously forge ahead with the initiated developments,” Bästlein added. (PC)
