EV Group’s CEO, CFO step down

May 18, 2005 — Two top executives at an Austrian supplier of MEMS, nano and semiconductor wafer-processing equipment resigned, the company announced today. Peter Podesser, chief executive officer, and Peter Hofmann, chief financial officer, left Scharding-based EV Group “due to different opinions in business policy,” according to a written statement. General management has been transferred to the owners and founders of the company, DI Erich Thallner and Aya Maria Thallner.

Erich Thallner said in a press release that the changes will allow the company, which was founded in 1980, to return to strategies that had proven successful. “Our common goal is to refocus our business on emerging technologies with highest growth potential such as MEMS, SOI, nanoimprint lithography, thin wafer processing and advanced packaging,” he said, “to work as closely as possible with the customers to assure continued support and, as a consequence, to further strengthen EV Group´s leadership position in those markets.”
