The CiS Group, with its headquarters in Krefeld and production locations in the Czech Republic and Romania, is reorganising its commercial management, finances, and controlling departments.
Mr Thomas Klaffke will assume the tasks of the Chief Financial Officer at CiS electronic GmbH as of 05 September, 2019. He therefore replaces Ralf Kühn after many years in office, who will remain at the company and dedicate himself to new assignments.
After an education in commerce and a program of economics studies in Cologne, Mr Klaffke now possesses more than 30 years of professional experience in the area of commercial management, finance, and controlling. After his studies, he lived and worked in the USA. Next, he was active in a wide variety of companies, for example the Metro Group, Bertelsmann, HT Troplast, and the Dometic Group. His time at HT Troplast was connected with intensive cooperation with branch locations in southern Europe.
“I’m very happy we were able to attract Mr Klaffke to CiS. We’re also sure that we’ll be able to continue stable growth in the context of our company strategy, iSpeed 2024, that our reputation and earning power will gain continuously, and that our partners’ confidence in the performance capabilities of the CiS Group will increase even more. Further digitisation and automation of administrative processes represent a big challenge. We extend a warm welcome to Mr Klaffke as he joins the CiS family, and we’re looking forward to an effective, successful cooperation,” states Peter M. Wöllner, CEO and owner of the CiS Group.
“We sincerely thank Mr Kühn for his successful collaboration over the last seven years as the company’s CFO. He’s been an employee at CiS electronic GmbH for over 30 years, and he’ll continue to provide his wealth of experience to the company elsewhere,” continues Peter M. Wöllner, owner of the CiS Group.
