The previous Deputy Chairman and union representative Stefan Schaumburg has retired.

Jakob Habermann was already elected as Stefan Schaumburg's replacement candidate in the election of employee representatives to the Supervisory Board in 2022. He has been a member of the Supervisory Board of JENOPTIK AG since January 1, 2024, with membership until the end of the Annual General Meeting in 2027. The Supervisory Board members elected him as Deputy Chairman. Jakob Habermann is a member of the same committees as Stefan Schaumburg, i.e. the Investment, Personnel and Mediation Committees.
