Lenzing CEO says he plans to step down

Posted September 15, 2021

 

LENZING, Austria – The Supervisory Board of Lenzing AG, the world’s leading producer of wood-based cellulosic fibers, has come to a mutual agreement with its longstanding Chief Executive Officer Stefan Doboczky to end his contract.

 

Doboczky has informed the Supervisory Board that he will not be available for another extension of his contract. With great regret, the Supervisory Board of Lenzing AG accepts his resignation and the parties mutually agreed to end the contract effective, September 30. 

 

“My sincere thanks go to Stefan Doboczky for his exceptional achievements at Lenzing. The design and implementation of the transformation of Lenzing AG into a global specialty fiber leader and the positioning of the company as a recognized sustainability champion have been major accomplishments of Stefan Doboczky over the last years,” said Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Peter Edelmann.

 

“Thanks to his leadership, Lenzing AG finds itself today on a stable and profitable growth track with a clear commitment to become climate-neutral by 2050 – and all of that in spite of the challenging environment of the COVID-19 pandemic,” he added. 

 

Stefan Doboczky said: “Developing and consistently implementing the Lenzing strategy has been the cornerstone of my work in recent years. After extensive consideration, I have decided that this is the right time for a personal change. The strategy is in place, the company is well on track – now is the ideal moment to pass on the baton. And one thing is certain: Lenzing will always have a very special place in my heart.”
