Jochen Hanebeck will take over as the new Chief Executive Officer of Infineon Technologies AG on 1 April 2022. This was decided today by the Supervisory Board. Hanebeck was reappointed for five years, his contract runs until 31 March 2027. He has been a member of the Management Board and Chief Operations Officer since 2016. He succeeds Dr. Reinhard Ploss, who has led the company as CEO since 2012.

“We are delighted to present Jochen Hanebeck, an outstanding expert of both the semiconductor industry and, of course, Infineon, for the position of Chief Executive Officer. The Supervisory Board, Dr. Ploss and Mr. Hanebeck will define the details of this change in the leadership of Infineon in the coming months,” says Dr. Wolfgang Eder, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Infineon. “Jochen Hanebeck has already contributed significantly to Infineon’s profitable growth trajectory over many years in various leadership positions. With him as CEO, the company will continue its success in the undoubtedly demanding times ahead. We thank Dr. Ploss most cordially for his extraordinarily successful work at the helm of Infineon. He has led Infineon into the global top ten. Thanks to his visionary power, and equally his personal thoughtfulness, Infineon today is excellently positioned as a technology leader in global high-growth markets.”

“I’m very grateful for the trust of the Supervisory Board,” says Jochen Hanebeck. “Together with the Management Board team and all employees, I want to seize the opportunities that continue to present themselves to Infineon in the future, and make our customers successful in the marketplace. Our semiconductor solutions are central pillars for the major trends of electrification and digitalization of the world. It is an honor for me to take over an excellently positioned company from Reinhard Ploss.”

“With Jochen Hanebeck, the Supervisory Board has made a very good choice for the future leadership of Infineon,” says CEO Dr. Reinhard Ploss. “I have known Jochen Hanebeck for many years as a competent and reliable colleague. He is very familiar with our industry and its challenges, and I am proud that Infineon’s course will continue to be determined by a member of today’s management team in the years to come.”

Dr. Reinhard Ploss (born 1955) has been a member of Infineon’s Management Board since 2007 and Chairman since 2012.
