Marc von Waldkirch to become the new CEO of Sensirion

Marc von Waldkirch has been appointed CEO of Sensirion, the Swiss high tech company, as of July 1, 2016. His predecessors, founders Felix Mayer and Moritz Lechner, will continue to play an active role sharing responsibilities as Chairmen of the Board.

CEOs Felix Mayer and Moritz Lechner, who have been largely responsible for the continued and successful growth of Sensirion since its foundation, will be stepping down from their operational management duties and, as Co-Chairmen of the Board, will focus instead on strategic product innovations for new markets. They will both remain active at Sensirion.

Marc von Waldkirch (born 1974) is a long-term employee with extensive expertise and is the ideal appointment as CEO. He will continue to guide the company with the same spirit as his predecessors. Marc von Waldkirch graduated from ETH Zurich with an honor's degree in physics. He then moved on to ETH Zurich's electrical engineering department, where he completed his doctorate in 2004. He joined Sensirion in 2005 as a Project Manager and was later Head of Liquid Sensor Development. He has been Vice-President of Development and a member of the Executive Board since 2011. He has made a significant contribution to Sensirion's high quality standards and the development of new products during this time.

This new operational and strategic management structure will further strengthen Sensirion's position as the world's leading full-service provider of intelligent sensor solutions well into the future.
