Burckhardt Compression’s Board of Directors will soon change due to Hans Hess’ decision to not stand for re-election at the Annual General Meeting on 6th July (2019).

The Board of Directors will propose the election of David Dean, current CEO of Bossard Group to the Board of Directors.

Hans Hess has served on the Board of Directors since 2006 and chaired the Board of Directors of Burckhardt Compression Holding AG from 2006 to 2010. Hess became a director immediately after Burckhardt Compression Holding AG went public and was the listed company’s first chairman.

The Board of Directors will propose the election of David Dean to the Board of Directors at the pending Annual General Meeting. Dean is stepping down from his position as CEO of Bossard Group in April (2019).

Dean is a Swiss certified expect for accounting and controlling and a Swiss certified public accountant. Dean has been with Bossard Group since 1993. He was appointed as Chief Financial Officer of the company in 1998 and CEO in 2004.

Dean is also a member of the Board of Directors of Komax Group, Agta-Record Group and Haag-Streit Group. Dean will be able to actively support Burckhardt Compression’s ongoing development with his knowledge of global supply chains and international markets.
