Heiko Ross leaves Bard

Deputy CEO Arwit Gunt will be his successor. The decision was taken by mutual agreement on 6th October at a shareholders' meeting. Ross has been the Holding company's CEO since March 2009, when he took over the position previously held by Natalia Bekker. The daughter of company founder Arngolt Bekker had died in February of last year. No official reasons for the move have been given. Since Ross has not gone to another company, however, internal differences are the likely cause. With nine finished wind turbines, the first project Bard Offshore I, for example, is far behind the schedule of 40 turbines by the end of this year. Likewise, the promising joint venture with the Spanish manufacturer Gamesa had broken up.
