Wienerberger reduces Managing Board to two members

Wienerberger AG has realigned its corporate organization. Areas with similar market dynamics and growth drivers were combined into three divisions: Bricks and Tiles Europe, Pipes and Pavers and North America.

Johann Windisch is leaving the Managing Board at his own request and will take on operational responsibility for the Bricks and Tiles Division in Europe. He will be joined by Christof Domenig (former Executive Managing Director West Europe) as COO and Deputy CEO and by Gerhard Hanke (formerly responsible for Corporate Controlling) as CFO. With this experienced team, the European brick business will be placed under unified management, which should lead to the better utilization of available strengths and the further optimization of processes.

The Supervisory Board has also extended the contracts of CEO Heimo Scheuch and CFO Willy Van Riet for five years.
