Thomas Schenkirsch to become new CFO of ASH Group


Thomas Schenkirsch will become the new CFO of the ASH Group. With effect from 1 April 2017, he will take over as the CFO of the ASH Group from Reto Huser, who is leaving the ASH Group at his own request.

Reto Huser has decided to leave the ASH Group for personal reasons. “We thank Mr Huser for his great commitment and valuable contributions during his short stay with our company”, says Barend Fruithof, CEO of the ASH Group.


With Thomas Schenkirsch taking over as the new CFO of the ASH Group, we have found a successor for this key position from within our own ranks. Thomas Schenkirsch has been working for the ASH Group as Director Group Controlling for as many as nine years and successfully served as the interim CFO from June 2016 to February 2017. During his previous time at the ASH Group, he contributed to the development of the companies Aebi and Schmidt, merged to the ASH Group in 2007. At the beginning of his work, his main focus was the reorganization of the ASH Group with the introduction of reporting, systems and processes, whereas in the last years he significantly contributed to the various acquisition projects. Thomas Schenkirsch holds a degree in business administration. Before starting to work for the ASH Group, he gained extensive experience in various functions at Von Roll Management AG in Switzerland as well as at PerkinElmer in Switzerland and at various locations abroad.


“We are convinced that this experience also gives Thomas Schenkirsch the perfect qualifications to greatly contribute to achieving our objectives in his capacity as CFO”, says Barend Fruithof, CEO of the ASH Group.
