To ensure a seamless transition, Mr. Peitz will initially assist Dr. Stephany in a consultancy role. We would like to thank Mr. Peitz for extra his successful work and loyal collaboration, and wish him all the very best for the future. At the same time, we would like to welcome Dr. Stephany into the JOEST group team and wish him a successful start in his new role.
