HOLZMINDEN, GERMANY: Symrise AG said its supervisory board has appointed Olaf Klinger (50) to become chief financial officer (CFO) of the company, starting 1 Feb, 2016 taking over the finance department from Bernd Hirsch. As announced in March, Hirsch is leaving at his own request and on amicable terms at the end of the year, Symrise said.

Klinger was most recently managing executive in charge of the finance department at AMEOS, the private clinic operator. Prior to that he held various management positions at Merck KGaA.

Olaf Klinger has over 20 years of experience in corporate finance and also brings with him substantial expertise in the chemical and healthcare sectors. He was employed for over twelve years by the pharmaceutical and chemical company Merck in Darmstadt and acted as CFO for the Swiss subsidiary Merck Serono SA in Geneva. In January, Klinger transferred to the private clinic operator AMEOS Group.

“We are very pleased to have won Olaf Klinger as new CFO. He brings with him extensive expertise in this field and has a high degree of sector-specific know-how in Symrise’s areas of growth. He also has years of experience abroad and is thus an excellent addition to Symrise as a growth-oriented, globally active company,” said Dr Thomas Rabe, chairman, supervisory board, Symrise AG.
