Amprion lines up management team for the future

Amprion builds on a strong management team. When he joins the Management Board on 1 July 2024, Dr Christoph Müller will assume the position of Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) before succeeding Dr Hans-Jürgen Brick as Chairman of the Management Board (CEO) on 1 January 2025.The Supervisory Board is prematurely extending the contract of CFO Peter Rüth by a further five years.

At a meeting held 18 June 2024, the Supervisory Board of Amprion GmbH appointed Dr Christoph Müller to the position of Chief Commercial Officer (CCO). Müller assumes responsibility for strategy, corporate development and grid management with immediate effect. On 1 January 2025, he will then succeed Dr Hans-Jürgen Brick as CEO, who is retiring from the company as scheduled.

“Amprion’s management team sees us excellently positioned for the future,” said Uwe Tigges, Chairman of the Supervisory Board. “Under the leadership of Dr Hans-Jürgen Brick, an orderly transition and stability in the company’s management team are guaranteed through to the end of 2024,” emphasises Tigges. This is supported by the early renewal of Amprion CFO Peter Rüth’s contract. “I am also delighted to announce that Peter Rüth will remain on the board as CFO for another five years. During this period, he will continue his successful management of the Finance division,” says Tigges. Dr Hendrik Neumann will remain part of the management team as Chief Technical Officer (CTO).

Müller, most recently CEO of grid operator Netze BW, brings extensive experience from the energy industry. “I am really looking forward to working with this highly qualified team to shape the future of Germany’s leading transmission system operator.”

For his part, CFO Rüth notes, “I would like to thank the Supervisory Board for the trust they have placed in me, and I look forward to continuing to work well also with my colleagues on the Management Board, our employees, partners, customers and investors.”
