Volker Paltzo has been appointed to the Management Board of Atlas Elektronik. Effective October 1, Paltzo will succeed Kai Horten, who leaves after five years as Managing Director of ATLAS to become CEO and President of the aircraft manufacturing supplier Premium Aerotec GmbH. Dieter Rottsieper will remain Speaker of the Management Board.
At present, Paltzo (46) is the COO of Eurofighter GmbH. Once he joins Atlas Elektronik, he will be responsible for Submarine Systems, Naval Weapons, Vessel Systems, Business Development and Marketing, as well as Services and Communications. After studying aircraft engineering he held several positions within the military defence business of EADS and DASA.
The Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Atlas Elektronik, Dr. Stefan Zoller, stated: “I am firmly convinced that Volker Paltzo, thanks to his broad experience in the high-tech industry and in the defence business, will be able to continue the growth course of ATLAS together with Dieter Rottsieper. I would like to thank Kai Horten for his excellent work over the past five years, in which he played a major role in bringing ATLAS onto a course of economic prosperity. The effectively implemented internationalization of ATLAS is due chiefly to his efforts. I wish him every success for his new assignment.”
