Bernhard Ohnesorge is the new Spectaris chairman
18.09.2023 - Mirjam Rösch becomes his deputy, Amily Guo now heads the Hamburg/Schleswig-Holstein regional group.
Dr Bernhard Ohnesorge, managing director of Carl Zeiss Jena, was elected as the new chairman with over ninety percent of the votes at the general meeting on September 12 in Berlin. Ohnesorge succeeds Ulrich Krauss.
Ohnesorge summarized his priorities for the future work of the association: “We need better political conditions, and to this end we must continue to expand our lobbying work in times of excessive regulation. Our member companies need to be supported above all in recruiting skilled workers and in doing business globally under geopolitical risks.”
The network across the four Spectaris industries is also to be further strengthened. For the past four years, Ohnesorge has been head of photonics at Spectaris. He would now like to relinquish this office promptly in order to devote himself fully to his new role as chairman.
His previous position as vice chairman had already been filled at the general meeting. Mirjam Rösch, commercial director DACH and managing director at Hoya Lens Germany and chair of consumer optics (ophthalmic optics) at Spectaris, was elected as his successor. In addition, the members elected Amily Guo (Drägerwerk) as the new chairwoman of the Hamburg/Schleswig-Holstein regional group. She succeeds Inga Kuhls (also Dräger).
For the first time, the association bundled its annual industry days, the evening annual reception and the general meeting into a Spectaris future festival. Through three parallel program tracks with renowend speakers, the guests received important suggestions and insights for the current challenges.
