Dr. Peter Schwarz-Kiene, Managing Director of eta plus, is leaving the company by mutual agreement on 16 April 2019. The duties of Managing Director will be temporarily assumed by Sales Director Dr. Markus Roth, eta plus, and Uwe Uhlemann, Head of Operations at IST Metz.

Eta plus electronic gmbh was founded in 1988. In 2000, Dr. Peter Schwarz-Kiene changed over from KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) to eta plus and initially worked as Technical Director. Since 2009, he has also been managing director of the company.

Different opinions about the future strategic direction of the company led to the joint decision of IST Metz and eta plus to go their separate ways in the future. “On behalf of the management, the foundation board and the employees, I would like to thank Dr. Peter Schwarz-Kiene for his many years of successful service to eta plus and for the great contributions he made to the company. I wish him all the best for his professional and private future,” said Christian-Marius Metz, CEO of the parent company IST Metz.
