Effective August 1st 2014, 36-year-old Sebastian Dierks has been appointed sole chief executive officer of Fotoformplus. The business graduate and experienced management consultant will succeed founder and shareholder Renke Detering who in the previous 14 years had established the company as a household name in the international photo production business. Since the beginning of the year, they had been working side by side as joint leaders to make the transition, as smooth as possible.
Detering, who will dedicate his time to new task fields and projects, welcomes the transition: „I am pleased to announce Sebastian Dierks as my successor. He will carry on my legacy to the best of his knowledge and belief and continue to steer Fotoformplus in the direction of growth.“ Sebastian Dierks adds: „In the future Fotoformplus will set new benchmarks of most effective and highly technological processes in the field of photo production. An expansion of business areas is in the works, whereby the accustomed high quality of work will be maintained.“
