At the elevator and escalator manufacturer Schindler, the announced change of boss will take place on October 1st. Alfred N. Schindler hands over the role of CEO to the Swede J├╝rgen Tinggren.

For the first time, the operational management of the group founded in 1874 is no longer in the hands of the Schindler family. Alfred N. Schindler, the great-grandchild of the company founder Robert Schindler, who was born in 1949, will remain full-time Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chairman of the Board Committee, as the group announced on Wednesday.

Alfred N. Schindler has been a member of the management team since 1977, he became CEO in 1985 and Chairman of the Board of Directors in 1995. He announced the change in operational responsibility at the balance sheet media conference on February 17, 2011. A structure with two company bosses made no sense after the separation of the previous IT wholesaling subsidiary, it was said.

Tinggren had headed the core elevator and escalator business and most recently served as chairman of the executive board. Born in 1958, the Swede has been part of the management team since 1997.
