Kirn, 06 June 2019. Matthias Schönberg (52) is to be appointed as new CEO and Chairman of the Management Board of SIMONA AG effective 15 August 2019. He will thus succeed Wolfgang Moyses, who has been a member of the Management Board since 1999 and has successfully managed the company in his capacity as CEO since 2003. During a career spanning almost 25 years, Matthias Schönberg has successfully managed and developed large and highly complex international business segments in a wide range of markets. Most recently, as Vice President at Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, he oversaw the company"s EMEA business with sales of EUR 1.4 billion and a workforce of 4,900 people.

Matthias Schönberg holds the degree of Diplom-Kaufmann from University of Bayreuth.



Mr. Schönberg has been offered a three-year contract by the plastics processing company headquartered in Kirn. Wolfgang Moyses, the current CEO of SIMONA, will transfer his responsibilities to Mr. Schönberg effective 15 August 2019 and is to remain a member of the Management Board until 30 September 2019. This ensures a well-structured transition for this key managerial role.



Additionally, Michael Schmitz will be appointed to the Management Board of SIMONA AG effective 15 August 2019. Mr. Schmitz had taken up the role of CFO at SIMONA as early as 30 June 2018.
