Switzerland's Biketec names Andreas Kessler new CEO
Swiss e-bike manufacturer Biketec has appointed a new CEO with effect from 18 April 2016. Andreas Kessler is taking over from Simon Lehmann, who leaves the company at his own request.
The Biketec Board of Directors has expressed regret at Simon Lehmann's decision. Board chairman Franz Studer said: "We thank him for his commitment to the company and for the innovative ideas he has brought to Biketec.
"As his successor, the board has named Andreas Kessler interim CEO with immediate effect. Andreas Kessler has many years of management experience in the sports and consumer goods sector. We are convinced that he is the ideal person to assume this role until a definitive appointment is made."
On 1 March 2016 Urs Eberhard was appointed CFO of Biketec, in succession to Urs Hänggi.
