Test solutions provider, Suss MicroTec AG of Munich, Germany, has appointed Christian Schubert as a new member of the Management Board. His responsibilities will correspond basically to that of a COO, focusing on operations, structures and processes. Schubert will take over the Management Board, however in the medium term the team will be supplemented by a board member with a technical background. Schubert has experience in working with companies in the fields of electrical engineering, electronics and automotive technology. He has held managing director and management board positions at the high-tech companies Kontron, Congatec and most recently Intica Systems. Schubert succeeds Stefan Schneidewind, who was relieved by the Supervisory Board on Oct. 2, 2008 due to differing strategic views.
