Generational change at the Lapp Group
The Lapp Group is setting its course for the future. With effect from 1 July 2017, Ursula Ida Lapp, founder of the Lapp Group, has stepped down from her position as Chairman of the Supervisory Board at U.I. Lapp GmbH following a long career as an entrepreneur. She has, instead, become Honorary Chairman of the Supervisory Board and so continues to support the company’s activities.
As of July 1st, 2017, her son Andreas Lapp has succeeded her as Chairman of the Supervisory Board at U.I. Lapp GmbH and at the same time resigned as CEO for Latin America, Europe, Middle East and Africa and CEO of U.I. Lapp GmbH. These positions have been taken up by his nephew Matthias Lapp. Andreas Lapp says, “I am delighted that this step ensures the successful transfer of long-term responsibilities within our family-operated company, and I welcome the appointment of Matthias Lapp as the new CEO, a move which hands this position of authority to someone with extensive experience, gathered during time spent abroad and within our company.”
