As Faber-Castell AG – a globally renowned company specialising in high-quality products for writing, drawing and creative design as well as decorative cosmetic products – reports, Gerhard Berssenbrügge will be resigning from his position as Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Faber-Castell AG at the end of 2023 in accordance with the company’s internal regulation due to age. The former CEO of the Schleich Group, Dirk Engehausen, will succeed him as a new member of the Supervisory Board.

Berssenbrügge had headed the Supervisory Board since 2015. Before that, he was a member of the board for four years. “We would like to thank Gerhard Berssenbrügge, who has provided outstanding advice to our company with his great sense of responsibility and profound knowledge of consumer goods and brands for many years, while outstandingly supporting the ever so important transformation process of the past years”, says Charles Graf von Faber-Castell, who is a member of the Supervisory Board as a representative of the 9th generation shareholder family. “The development of the Faber-Castell Group would not have been as successful without the contribution of Mr. Berssenbrügge.”

For over eight years Berssenbrügge‘s successor Dirk Engehausen headed the toy company Schleich, a brand manufacturer of realistic figures and game sets. Before that, he worked among other things, as director of sales at Tchibo and for over 20 years in different positions at Lego, most recently as director of the European business division.
