Leadership roles change at Endress+Hauser

Jan. 4, 2024
Dirk Mörmann, Peter Selders and Matthias Altendorf move up a rung as Klaus Endress leaves his role as president of the supervisory board

Dr. Peter Selders has taken over as CEO of Endress+Hauser Group. The 54-year-old holds a doctorate in physics, has been with the company since 2004 and was previously managing director of the competence center for level and pressure measurement technology based in Maulburg, Germany. Selders is only the fourth CEO in the 70-year history of the Swiss measurement technology and automation company (Figure 1).

His predecessor Matthias Altendorf is moving to the supervisory board after 10 years at the helm (Figure 2). In 2014, he became the first non-family CEO to succeed Dr. Klaus Endress (Figure 3). Altendorf is now replacing the 75-year-old as president of the supervisory board. In future, two members of the third generation will represent the interests of the shareholder family. In addition to Sandra Genge, Steven Endress, a grandson of the company founder, joined the board on January 1.
Selders has been succeeded at Endress+Hauser Level+Pressure by Dr. Dirk Mörmann, who was previously head of technology and a member of the management board. Endress+Hauser had already announced all these changes in February 2023.
