Karl-Heinz Pfisterer, grandson of the company’s founder, was appointed Honorary Chairman of the Supervisory Board on June 29, 2023. He had been responsible for the company for over 50 years, first in operational management and then as a member of the Supervisory Board of PFISTERER Holding AG.
With the transformation into a public limited company (Aktiengesellschaft, AG) in 1999, the foundations were laid for the business to develop independently of the family. With the transformation into a Societas Europaea (SE) and the appointment of the corporate bodies in 2023, the way was paved for the independent and successful future of the PFISTERER Group. This completed the separation of family and company management. Eventually the non-profit KAP Foundation will also take over from Karl-Heinz Pfisterer as shareholder of the company.
