Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG: Supervisory Board appoints Friedrich Conzen as new Chairman of the Management Board

Berlin, 26 February 2024

 The Supervisory Board of Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG has appointed Friedrich (Fritz) Conzen as a new member and Chairman of the Management Board with effect as of 1 March 2024. He succeeds Carsten Lind, who has energetically led the company since 2020 and will leave the Management Board in agreement with the Supervisory Board on March 1st, 2024.

Carsten Lind says: ”In 2021 we initiated FUTURE@FP with the promise to reverse the trend of FP declining and making losses and to build a digital business. All three promises are achieved and delivered. Our digital business virtually doubled largely based on our SaaS solutions.”

Johannes Boot, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG, expresses his gratitude to Carsten Lind, whose energy and vision contributed significantly to the growth of the digital business and the transformation of FP. Carsten Lind also successfully expanded the business in the Nordics, both organically and through M&A.

As new CEO, Friedrich Conzen (48) is expected to build on the strategy and help further grow the digital business, supported by cash flow from the core mailing business globally. He started his career in consulting with Droege & Company and A.T. Kearney, after which he gained experience leading medium sized companies. Most recently he led the transformation and repositioning of Nedis, a consumer electronics wholesaler in The Netherlands.

Friedrich Conzen is excited about the opportunity to continue the transformation and growth of Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG and says “I feel honored to be entrusted with the leadership of a company with a 100-year tradition as Francotyp-Postalia, and I look forward to working with my new colleagues to let the company grow and prosper”.
