Conergy AG's supervisory board has named Dr. Sebastian Biedenkopf its new chief financial officer (CFO). Biedenkopf replaces Dr. Jorg Spiekerkotter, who has announced his resignation, effective at the end of October. Biedenkopf's appointment will become effective Nov. 1.
Biedenkopf joined Conergy in July 2008 as head of the legal, compliance, grants and subsidies, and insurance divisions. Previously, he held roles with Maxingvest AG and Bertelsmann AG.
During the company's reorganization, Spiekerkotter was already working hand in hand with Biedenkopf. Biedenkopf was substantially involved in contract negotiations with supplier MEMC and was also intensively involved in the company's refinancing discussions, Conergy notes.
