Enercon CEO Momme Janssen will leave the company for personal reasons on 31 December 2021.
He took on the company’s top job in December 2020 following the retirement of Hans-Dieter Kettwig.
Janssen is responsible for managing Enercon’s transformation programme: a restructuring of the company’s German manufacturing and targeting of international markets.
He joined the company in early 2016 and began coordinating preparations for streamlining its nacelle and generator manufacturing in Germany and integration of external suppliers – measures later carried out as part of the transformation programme. Janssen also sat on the company's board and was responsible for Enercon’s HR, communications, marketing and IT departments.
Enercon is already in the advanced stages of finding Janssen’s successor, it stated.
Heiko Janssen, chairman of the board of the Aloys Wobben Stiftung trust, the sole shareholder of Enercon, said: “We thank Mr Janssen for his commitment and the hard work he has put into supporting the company during this difficult phase of restructuring.
“Above all, we would like to recognise his achievements in stabilising the position of the company.”
Momme Janssen will stand down as CEO and leave the company but remain available to Enercon beyond the end of the year to ensure provisional leadership and an orderly handover for his successor, Heiko Janssen added.
