Leadership of Raylase Group changes

With the final formal transfer of the role of CEO of its Chinese subsidiary to Dr Philipp Schön, the change of leadership of the Raylase Group has now been successfully completed.

As of August 2018, Dr Philipp Schön is stepping into the additional role as CEO of Raylase's Chinese subsidiary Raylase Laser Technology Co. Ltd in Shenzhen. This marks the successful completion of the final formal transfer of responsibility for the subsidiary from the original founder and CEO Peter von Jan to Dr Philipp Schön.

As CEO of the Raylase Group, Dr Philipp Schön has responsibility for the headquarters of Raylase GmbH in Munich, as well as the two subsidiaries, Raylase Laser Technology Co. Ltd in China and Raylase Laser Technology Inc in the USA.

Flora Dai, general manager at Raylase Laser Technology Co. Ltd, heads up operations at the Chinese subsidiary. Flora has been with the company for more than seven years. During this time, she has played an important part in the success of the subsidiary in China and made a huge contribution to establishing the Raylase brand there. Raylase Laser Technology Co. Ltd manufactures and sells Chinese products exclusively for the Asian region.

A newly established board of directors consisting of Dr Philipp Schön (CEO of the Raylase Group and chair of the board of directors), Flora Dai (general manager of Raylase China) and Berthold Dambacher (CTO of Raylase Germany) will ensure the strategic alignment of the Chinese subsidiary and Group headquarters in Germany.

Raylase has thanked Peter von Jan for his tireless efforts and for the contribution he has made to the success of the Group.
