René Ziegler has been chosen to join Exyte as Head of Corporate Communications & Investor Relations on May 1, 2022.
Ziegler will report to the Stuttgart-based company's CEO Dr Wolfgang Büchele. After seven years with Exyte, his predecessor Adriana Williams is moving on to join a leading global manufacturer of semi-finished copper and copper alloy products.
Exyte is a global leader in designing, developing and building high-tech facilities, particularly semiconductor fabs, battery factories and biopharmaceuticals manufacturing plants. The company also constructs specialised buildings to house data centres.
Ziegler's responsibilities will include corporate communications, investor relations, and marketing communications.
"Exyte is gaining an acknowledged communications professional and a strong leader in René Ziegler. He will continue to advance Exyte's communications in terms of content, organization, and processes. Drawing on many years' experience in reputation management, he will provide communications support for Exyte's growth strategy," says Büchele.
Ziegler added: "Current and future stakeholders are sure to be drawn to Exyte as it continues to professionalise and internationalize its communications. I look forward to charting the strategic course for the further development of communications and, by extension, the transformation of Exyte."
Ziegler brings to the table many years' experience with technology, innovation, and business and financial communications. He is joining Exyte from Brose, an automotive supplier based in the German region of Franconia.
Ziegler was responsible for communications, marketing, and public affairs at this family-owned company. Prior to that, he had held various communications positions at the technology and services company Bosch. Most recently, he was responsible for strategy and thought leadership. He had also long been in charge of the Bosch Group's external communications and media relations.
