Nanogate SE: Change to the Supervisory Board


Göttelborn, Germany, February 4, 2019. Martin Hendricks will follow Hartmut Gottschild on the Supervisory Board of Nanogate SE, a leading global specialist for design-oriented high-tech surfaces and components.


Hartmut Gottschild, who has been a member of the Supervisory Board since the IPO in 2006, has resigned his membership of the Supervisory Board of Nanogate SE for personal reasons as of January 31, 2019. He will remain connected to the Group as a member of the advisory board of our subsidiaries. Martin Hendricks succeeds him. Upon the recommendation of the Supervisory Board and at the request of the Management Board, he has been appointed a member of the Supervisory Board by the Saarbrücken district court as of February 01, 2019 until the shareholders’ meeting in June 2019. The plan is to suggest to the shareholders’ meeting in June 2019 that Mr. Hendricks is confirmed in his position, so that he is permanently available to the Supervisory Board.


Hendricks (born in 1962) was most recently the Executive Vice President of the U.S. automotive supplier Tenneco. He previously held managerial positions at Federal-Mogul Motorparts and EurotaxGlass’s International AG, among others. The father of three holds a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Cologne.


Oliver Schumann, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Nanogate SE: “We thank Hartmut Gottschild for his many years of commitment and his invariably constructive and trustworthy collaboration. During all his years of activity at Nanogate, he made important contributions to the successful development of the company. We regret but respect his wish to retire from the Group’s Supervisory Board for personal reasons. At the same time, we are delighted that we have been able to gain Martin Hendricks, a proven industry expert with a great deal of international experience. With his expertise, he will support the Supervisory and Management Boards to the fullest extent.”
