Leverkusen, 02.11.2020

Within the last year, Carcoustics has started a change process with the assumption of the chair of the advisory board by Axel Schulmeyer and the change of the CEO to Mr. Kai Uwe Frühauf. The aim is to position Carcoustics in a more customer- and market-oriented way and in the long term as technology and quality leader in the market.

To support this development, Carcoustics has also reorganized the company structure: An Executive Management Board existing of six persons will take over the management of the Carcoustics Group in the future: CEO Kai Uwe Frühauf, CCO Thomas Sundermann, Managing Director Interior Solutions Karl Kicker, Managing Director Powertrain Solutions Horst Lederer, Managing Director Exterior Solutions Peter Krause and Managing Director Business Excellence Martin Berndt.

Kai Frühauf (CEO) and Thomas Sundermann (CCO) take over the management of the group with immediate effect.

Within the framework of the strategic, new position of the company in the future, Georg Brasch, previously CFO of the Carcoustics Group, is leaving the management and the company. Mister Brasch has played a key role in shaping the successful development of the Carcoustics Group within the last eleven years. We wish him all the best for the future, both professionally and personally.

As Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), Mr. Sundermann will thus also assume the areas of responsibility from Mr. Brasch in addition to his current activities and joins the management board of the Carcoustics International GmbH.
