Bühler says goodbye to Ruth Metzler-Arnold

Resigning from the Board of Directors at Bühler after 10 years, Ruth Metzler-Arnold has faith in the company’s future success.

Swiss plant equipment manufacturer Bühler saw a change of leadership at this year’s general shareholders meeting on 11 February 2021.

Initially announced in August 2020, Ruth Metzler-Arnold has resigned from two positions within Bühler. One as a Member of the Board of Directors which she has held since 2011 and also as the Chairwoman of the Audit Committee, held since 2014.

She will be succeeded by Stefan Scheiber, also CEO of Bühler, as a new Member of the Board of Directors. Elected by the shareholders, Scheiber has more than 30 years of experience within Bühler.

Her position as Chairwoman of the Audit Committee will be handed over to Rainer Schulz, who is also a member of the Board of Directors.

With more than a decade working with Bühler, Metzler-Arnold was given a fond farewell.

“We would like to thank Ruth Metzler-Arnold for bringing her profound knowledge of business and especially corporate governance to us over the past 10 years. On behalf of the shareholders and the members of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank her most sincerely for her many years of commitment,” Chairman of the Board of Directors, Calvin Grieder said on the night.

Commenting on her resignation, it is clear Metzler-Arnold has high hopes for the future of Bühler.

“In recent years, Bühler has set the right course in innovation and digitalisation. Therefore, the company is in a first-class position to fully exploit current and future business opportunities” she says.
