Ralf Spielberger new CFO of Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG


Berlin, September 30, 2022 – The Supervisory Board of Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG (ISIN DE000FPH9000) has appointed Ralf Spielberger (54) as a member of the Management Board and as the new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) with effect of 1 October 2022.

He will take over the functions of Martin Geisel (62), who, as agreed, will not be extending his contract. The personnel announcement had already been made by the company within the general shareholders' meeting in June 2022.

Since 2007, Spielberger has been CFO for the European business at Pitney Bowes and, since 2011, managing director for the companies in Germany and Austria. In 2015, he moved to ADAC SE, where he was responsible for Finance and Services as a member of the Management Board. After a short period at Thieme Verlag as CFO and Chief Operating Officer, he became CFO of Ventura Travel until September 2022. Mr Spielberger is not only a financial expert, but also has extensive experience with digital transformation processes in various industries. He will thus complement FP's management team in the challenges ahead and ensure the continuation of the transformation with profitable growth, especially contributing his transformation expertise in the areas of ERP/CRM, Finance and Services.

The Supervisory Board thanks Martin Geisel for his commitment and for his contribution to the implementation of FP's transformation.

"In Ralf Spielberger, we have found an expert who will not only successfully drive forward the transformation of FP but will also provide momentum from his extensive experience in the further optimisation of processes. We wish him and his team every success," says Dr Alexander Granderath, Chairman of the Supervisory Board. "Martin Geisel is accompanied by our best wishes for his future."
