Ralf Knorrenschild a new member of Selux AG board

Berlin, Feb­ru­ary 2017 – Ralf Knor­ren­schild joined the man­age­ment board of Selux AG in Feb­ru­ary 2017. The 52-year assumed respon­si­bil­ity of Sales, Mar­ket­ing and Human Resources while Jürgen Hess (52), who joined the Selux AG board on 27th July 2015, con­tin­ues to be respon­si­ble for tech­ni­cal and com­mer­cial mat­ters.

Ralf Knor­ren­schild was born in Ham­burg and can look back on 29 suc­cess­ful years in the light­ing sector, start­ing with his time at Philips Light in 1988 where he quickly became respon­si­ble for sales, before chang­ing to the Zum­to­bel Group in Aus­tria in 2003. Here, as the Senior Vice-Pres­i­dent of Global Key Accounts and Busi­ness Chan­nel End Users, he was lat­terly respon­si­ble for global key cus­tomer busi­ness and public light­ing.

I look for­ward to the chal­lenge of actively con­tribut­ing to the devel­op­ment of the Selux brand as a pre­mium man­u­fac­turer of sus­tain­able light­ing solu­tions for exte­rior and inte­rior busi­ness, together with Jürgen Hess,“ explained Mr Knor­ren­schild. The topic of IoT for exam­ple, the Inter­net of Things, will in future play a sig­nif­i­cant role in exte­rior light­ing too. Work­ing together with Jürgen Hess, I envis­age huge poten­tial for Selux AG here.“ Mr Hess, like­wise look­ing for­ward to col­lab­o­rat­ing with his new fellow man­age­ment board member, sim­i­larly sees Selux at the very fore­front when it comes to tech­nol­ogy, design and ser­vice in the light­ing sector:“ We share many ideas for a Selux cor­po­rate vision, com­ple­ment one another superbly and the chem­istry between us is per­fect.“

In appoint­ing Jürgen Hess and Ralf Knor­ren­schild to the man­age­ment board, the Selux super­vi­sory board has set the Selux Group up superbly for a suc­cess­ful path into the future.
