Ruamedic, the medical subsidiary of Rehau AG, has appointed a new CFO who will take over the position 1 July.
Bernhard Kernen will assume responsibility for finance and organisation at the Helmbrechts, Germany-based company, replacing Michael Stellwag, who left Raumedic in June 2016.
Kernen’s major responsibilities at the polymer specialist will include oversight and enhancement of financial and cost accounting, purchasing, IT, customer service, disposition and organisation.
He has held a number of commercial managerial positions at the Rehau Group. In his most recent position, the 42-year-old native of Switzerland oversaw the operations of the plant-extract manufacturer Anklam Extrakt as the company's commercial director.
