Dr. Peter Selders takes over as CEO of Endress+Hauser. The 54-year-old Selders holds a doctorate in physics, has been with the company since 2004 and was previously managing director of the competence centre for level and pressure measurement technology in Maulburg, Germany. He is only the fourth CEO in the family-owned company’s 70-year history.

His predecessor, Matthias Altendorf (56), is moving to the supervisory board after 10 years at the helm. In 2014, he became the first non-family CEO, succeeding Dr Klaus Endress. He is now replacing the 75-year-old Endress as president of the supervisory board. In future, two members of the third generation will represent the interests of the shareholder family. They are Sandra Genge and Steven Endress, a grandson of the company founder, who joined the board on January 1, 2024.

Peter Selders has been succeeded at Endress+Hauser Level+Pressure by Dr Dirk Mörmann (50), who was previously head of technology and a member of the management board.
