YXLON International GmbH196, Hamburg, Germany

The Board of Directors appoints Thomas Wenzel as head of the X-Ray Systems (IXS) division and member of the Executive Committee of the Comet Group, effective December 1, 2018. Following a comprehensive evaluation process, the Comet Group has thus selected an in-house candidate with 25 years of experience in the x-ray systems business.

In Thomas Wenzel, 53, a seasoned leader and proven expert in the business is taking the helm of X-Ray Systems. Holding a computer science degree and a PhD in engineering, he has 15 years of management experience at the renowned Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits in Erlangen, Germany. There he had strategic, scientific and financial responsibility for the Nanofocus System Engineering area and later for Process - Integrated Test Systems. Since 2015 Thomas Wenzel has been Vice President, Technology, of the X-Ray Systems division and the Comet Group. Moreover, as interim head of Research & Development at X -Ray Systems he has played a central role in advancing the development of this business in the past months.

“Thomas Wenzel has an exceptional knowledge of the relevant x-ray systems markets and applications,” says René Lenggenhager, CEO of the Comet Group. “With his extensive expertise, his capacity for innovation and his understanding of the market – also in regard to digitalization – he is ideally suited to take our X-Ray Systems division to a new level both strategically and operationally. He is trusted and highly regarded within and outside the Group and will tackle the issues in the X-Ray Systems business with the necessary speed and vigor.” The Board of Directors and management are convinced that under the leadership of Thomas Wenzel, the X-Ray Systems division will be successfully developed and managed so as to generate value.

On December 1, 2018, Thomas Wenzel will take over the management of the IXS division from Matthias Barz, who has led it since July 2018 as interim manager and who will continue to assist with the initiated measures until their completion. The Board of Directors and management would like to thank Matthias Barz for his achievements and his commitment.
