Duesseldorf, October 11, 2018-Andreas Schütte (56) will step down from the Management Board of Gerresheimer AG at his own request as of February 28, 2019 in order to pursue new career challenges. The Supervisory Board of Gerresheimer AG approved this wish at its meeting yesterday.

"We accept Mr. Schütte's wish to terminate his contract at his own request ahead of term and thank him for his commitment and service to Gerresheimer AG over what has been almost ten years.
