Change in the finance department of the SMA Management Board

Niezetal, May 19, 2022 Ulrich Hadding, Chief Financial, HR and Legal Director of SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA, FWB: S92), leaves the company at his own request on May 31, 2022 after many years of service. Barbara Gregor, Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer of thyssenkrupp Materials Trading GmbH and the international Thyssenkrupp Materials Trading Group, was appointed to the Management Board as its successor.

Ulrich Hadding leaves the SMA board to take on a new professional challenge. Hadding, who has been the Head of Finance and Legal at SMA since 2009, was appointed to the Management Board in 2017 as CFO and Employment Director. In addition to the areas of finance and law, he was also responsible for human resources, compliance, audit, property management and public affairs. In addition, he has played a key role in all of SMA’s recent M&A activities and has managed communications in the company’s capital market. SMA is a great company that is perfectly prepared to take advantage of the development opportunities in the field of renewable energy. I wish SMA, CEO Jürgen Reinert, Barbara Gregor and all employees every success for the future, Hadding said.

Barbara Gregor was appointed by the Supervisory Board to succeed Ulrich Hadding and will take up the position of CFO at SMA from December 1, 2022. He has many years of international experience in all areas of CFO responsibility, in particular in the management and further development of finance, controlling, accounting, risk management, HR and IT. Barbara Gregor is also recognized as an expert in international M&A transactions, change management, strategic business development and rotation management. Until she joins, Thomas Pixa, executive vice president of finance at SMA, will represent the finance department as interim CEO.

We would like to thank Ulrich Hadding for his commitment, international approach and exceptional expertise. SMA could benefit a lot from this. We wish him every success and all the best in his new career goals. We are pleased that we have gained the personality of Barbara Gregor with many years of international experience in finance, who will continue to develop SMA’s path to becoming a sustainable systems and solutions provider and who will actively help shape it thanks to her unique knowledge, says Uwe Kleinkauf, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of SMA . We are convinced that Jürgen Reinert and Barbara Gregor will make the best possible use of the opportunities offered by the development of renewable energies and meet the challenges of our industry thanks to new solutions, innovative business models and a sustainable financial strategy.
