AIXTRON SE: Christian Ludwig appointed as new Vice President Investor Relations

Herzogenrath, April 30, 2024 – AIXTRON (FSE: AIXA) appoints Christian Ludwig (52) as new Vice President Investor Relations. Ludwig, previously Senior Vice President IR, Communications & Marketing at DEUTZ AG in Cologne (Germany) will start in his new role at the leading provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry on May 1st, 2024.

“With Christian Ludwig we have won a proven capital markets expert with many years of experience in the semiconductor industry. We are very pleased to have him join our team to continue our successful capital markets communication and to set new impulses,” says Dr. Christian Danninger, CFO of AIXTRON SE.

After earning his degree in industrial engineering, Christian Ludwig began his professional career as a purchaser of semiconductor equipment at Philips Semiconductors in Hamburg (Germany). This was followed by an international assignment in the U.S., where he was responsible for the company’s capital goods purchasing in the region.

From 2004 onwards, Ludwig worked as a Research Analyst – initially as a Senior Equity Analyst at Berenberg Bank in Hamburg, and since 2010 at Bankhaus Lampe in Düsseldorf (Germany). His last position there was Head of Equity Research before he moved to the corporate side to DEUTZ in 2020.

“We warmly welcome Christian Ludwig to our AIXTRON team and thank Carsten Werle, who has been overseeing our IR department as an interim manager in the recent months,” says CFO Danninger. During a transitional period, Carsten Werle will continue to be available as an additional contact for AIXTRON’s IR department.
