Bremen, December 12, 2008 - MeVis Medical Solutions AG [ISIN: DE000A0LBFE4], a specialist in disease-oriented software solutions for image-based medicine, announces the appointment of a new chief financial officer.
Effective January 1, 2009, the Supervisory Board has appointed Christian H. Seefeldt (52) as a new member of the Company’s Executive Board for a period of two years. After graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering and business administration from the Technical University of Berlin, Mr. Seefeldt spent twelve years in management and controlling positions at two global high-tech companies, followed by a further ten years as chief financial officer primarily for fast-growing software companies.
As originally planned, Dr. Olaf Sieker (40) is leaving MeVis Medical Solutions AG at the end of the year following the expiration of his contract. As chief financial officer he played a key role in the Company’s stock market flotation at the end of 2007 and the ensuing ex-tensions to the MeVis Group. Prior to this, he had supported the Company for many years in his capacity as an external advisor. The members of the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his contribution. Dr. Sieker will continue to advise the MeVis Group as an external consultant, thus ensuring a smooth transition to the new chief financial officer.
