With Helfrich joining the company, Bundesdruckerei's executive management will once again be made up of two persons. The CEO is Ulrich Hamann, who has been managing the company since 2004 and, since Jan. 1, 2009, has also been temporarily in charge of the functions Helfrich is now going to take over.
Helfrich was born in 1967 in Heidelberg, where he studied economics at Ruprecht-Karls University. Since 1997, the economist has been working for the Agfa group in different positions.
Willi Berchtold, chairman of the Supervisory Board, commented, "We are delighted that we were able to win Mr. Helfrich as an experienced executive for this area. This will foster Bundesdruckerei's positive development further."
