From 2002 to 2011, he held a range of managerial positions in the Corporate Finance segment of Siemens AG, where he was responsible for the Financial Audit, Accounting, and Reporting departments as well as the central Reporting & Controlling department. From 2000 to 2002, he held the position of Commercial Director of the Wireline Communications business unit at Infineon AG. Prior to this, he was responsible for several management functions in the central Finance department of Siemens AG and spent two years working for Siemens subsidiaries in the USA. Dr. Patzak holds a doctorate in business administration and is both a graduate in business studies and an industrial management assistant.

Georg F. W. Schaeffler, family shareholder and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Schaeffler AG, stated: "We are delighted to welcome Dr. Klaus Patzak, a highly experienced and capable CFO, to Schaeffler AG. Dr. Patzak joins the Schaeffler Group at a time that is characterized by major challenges. We are certain that his profound expertise will play a significant role in successfully preparing the Schaeffler Group for the future. His extensive long-term experience working for major international industrial and technology companies will be a particularly valuable asset to us in this regard."

Mr. Schaeffler also expressed his thanks to Dietmar Heinrich: "Dietmar Heinrich has been with the Schaeffler Group for 25 years, during which he has performed outstandingly in many important functions both in Germany and abroad. In particular, I want to highlight the fact that he has continued to show great dedication to his duties within the Schaeffler Group during the corona crisis despite his pending departure from the company. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Mr. Heinrich on behalf of the entire Supervisory Board for his years of excellent work and wish him, also on behalf of my mother Maria-Elisabeth Schaeffler-Thumann, all the best both professionally and personally for the future."
