Eric Küppers (CEO) and Dr. Kristijan Bauer (COO) Form New Management of the Rosenberger Group


The technology company Rosenberger has succeeded in strengthening the company's management for the next step towards future growth.

Starting on July 1, 2021, Dr. Kristijan Bauer has joined the management team of the Rosenberger Group as Chief Operations Officer (COO). Along with Eric Küppers, who already took up his position as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in Fridolfing on May 1, 2021, he will work together to lead the organization to implement the Rosenberger Group’s corporate strategy across the globe.


The entrepreneurial and international experience that Mr. Küppers and Dr. Bauer bring to the Rosenberger Group will be a great asset for the expanding company.

Eric Küppers has already held various positions in private as well as internationally operating companies. Most recently, he was responsible for the automotive business at the technology company TE Connectivity as President Global Automotive.

Dr. Kristijan Bauer held international management positions at the globally operating Continental AG for more than 20 years and was most recently responsible for the worldwide production at Festo SE & Co. KG, an automation and control technology company which is a family-owned company of similar size and structure to Rosenberger.

Rosenberger will continue to be family-owned. The current managing directors, brothers Peter, Hans and Bernhard Rosenberger, will withdraw from the daily operational business and participate in the newly created Supervisory Board, to which the new management will report in the future.
