"We respect her wish to take up a new position in her home region and thus close to her family, and sincerely wish her all the best for the future. We are very pleased that we have found a competent successor within our company.  Rupert Krautbauer has already been doing excellent work for us for many years. He knows the semiconductor industry very well and is very familiar with our markets and technologies. We wish Dr. Krautbauer all the best and much success in his new role."
