ZURICH, July 9 (Reuters) – Straumann’s (STMN.S) finance chief will step down after four months in the job because it didn’t fit his expectations, the world’s second-largest maker of dental implants said on Friday.
Chief Financial Officer Wolf-Ruediger Daetz, who joined Straumann from Siemens Building Technologies, will leave in the autumn and his role will be covered on an interim basis by Chief Executive Beat Spalinger, the Swiss company said.
“Basically the job just didn’t fit his expectations. He is staying until the end of September and he will fulfil his responsibilities,” a Straumann spokesman said.
“Spalinger was the previous CFO. He knows the team. He has done the job before,” the spokesman added.
