GERMANY: Dr Jürgen Süß has resigned as CEO of Efficient Energy GmbH, the manufacturer of chillers using water as a refrigerant.
The company says he will continue to work for Efficient Energy in an advisory capacity as brand ambassador.
Current CFO Georg Dietrich will take over as Interim CEO until a successor has been found.
“EE is growing much faster than the overall refrigeration market, and we still have a lot of plans in the pipeline – in particular, we want to drive commercialisation with new, more powerful and scalable products, and to tap new application and customer segments in Germany and abroad,” said Georg Dietrich in an initial statement.
Advisory council chair, Dr Wolfgang Colberg said about the departure: “Dr. Süß’s outstanding expertise in refrigeration technology made a major contribution towards driving “Water as a Refrigerant” technology and, with his strong personal commitment, he laid the foundations for efficient energy’s successful development.”
Formerly MD at Cofely Refrigeration, Süß joined Efficient Energy in 2013 and has been CEO for the past four years.
