Leica gets another new CEO — Matthias Harsch

Posted on by Mike Evans

Following Oliver Kaltner's decision to step down from his role as Leica Camera AG chief executive officer from tomorrow, the company's supervisory board has named 52-year-old Matthias Harsch as his successor.

Since April this year Mr. Harsch has been the Leica board member responsible for sales, retail and marketing & corporate communications. He previously led a successful turnaround as the CEO of Loewe AG and for many years was a director of the Bizerba Group.
