Endress+Hauser has completed the change at the top of the group: Dr Peter Selders has taken over as CEO of the Swiss specialist for measurement technology and automation solutions. The 54-year-old holds a doctorate in physics, has been with the company since 2004 and was previously managing director of the competence centre for level and pressure measurement technology based in Maulburg, Germany. He is only the fourth CEO in the group’s 70-year history.

His predecessor Matthias Altendorf is moving to the supervisory board after 10 years at the helm. In 2014, he became the first non-family CEO to succeed Dr Klaus Endress. He is now replacing the 75-year-old as president of the supervisory board. In future, two members of the third generation will represent the interests of the shareholder family. In addition to Sandra Genge, Steven Endress, a grandson of the company founder, joined the board on 1 Jan 2024.

Peter Selders has been succeeded at Endress+Hauser Level+Pressure by Dr Dirk Mörmann, who was previously head of technology and a member of the management board.
