Change of management at Chronoswiss as Lang steps down

Lang, who has served in his current rôle for 28 years, will, however, continue to support the brand as the chairman of a newly created advisory board – comparable to a board of directors – and the company says it will “continue as an independent family business in public.”

As of the 1 July, the board of management consists of Sigrun Schillings-Heinen, Chronoswiss’s head of business administration, and Karlo Josef Burgmayer (pictured), the company’s head of sales.

“After the crisis and the economic difficulties of 2009–2010, the right moment had not come yet,” explained 68-year-old Lang. “However, in view of the great feedback we received at the BaselWorld fair and our promising new models and very positive development in the first half of 2011, the course for a successful future of Chronoswiss is now set and I feel the time is ripe for a change.”
