Following nearly three decades in his role as CEO at Otto Bock HealthCare GmbH, Prof. Hans Georg Nader (56) will be assuming the leadership of the supervisory board of the future Ottobock SE & Co.

Longstanding CFO Harry Wertz (60) will exclusively continue his role as CEO with the Otto Bock Holding GmbH & CoKG.
The head of the Nader Family Office, Stefan Hirsch (45), was also enlisted to the executive board of Otto Bock Holding GmbH & Co. KG as part of the developments within the company.
