Rudolf Graf, Chairman of the Board of Directors of AFG, has informed the Board of Directors that he will no longer be available for re-election at the coming Annual General Meeting. Rudolf Graf, who has been Chairman of the Board of Directors of AFG since 2013 and who has also been responsible for the operational management of AFG as its interim CEO in 2014, has decided to step down with immediate effect following completion of the strategic realignment and the arrival of Artemis Holding AG as a new and effective force among the shareholders of AFG. Rudolf Graf made a key contribution to both of these successfully concluded projects. His period of office also included the divestment of Forster Precision Steel Tubes, the STI Group and of the kitchens business, the acquisition of the strategically significant Sabiana and the appointment of the Group's new CEO, William J. Christensen.
