LDS ams Osram 400

Premstaetten, Austria and Munich, Germany (30 January 2023) — ams OSRAM (SIX: AMS), a global leader in optical solutions, announces that Alexander Everke will step down as CEO of ams OSRAM after seven successful years at the helm of the company. He will be succeeded by Aldo Kamper whom the Supervisory Board of ams OSRAM has today appointed as Chairman of the Management Board and CEO. Aldo Kamper has been CEO of Leoni AG, Nuremberg, a global player in energy and data management solutions for the automotive industry, since 2018. Prior, Aldo Kamper spent over 15 years in different management positions with OSRAM, most recently as general manager of the business unit Opto Semiconductors, which recorded significant growth under his leadership.


Alexander Everke was appointed member of the Management Board of ams AG (now ams-OSRAM AG) in 2015 and became CEO in 2016. Since then he developed the company into a leading provider of optical solutions via organic growth and successful acquisitions. In this period, group revenues grew rapidly from around EUR 500 million to around EUR 5 billion (fiscal year 2021). At the same time, the company’s portfolio was significantly expanded by innovative sensor products and leading LED technology.

Alexander Everke emphasized: „Two years after operationally completing the acquisition of OSRAM the integration of both businesses into one company has reached an advanced stage. ams OSRAM is strongly positioned for the future as a highly innovative semiconductor player with an attractive portfolio and excellent market position. This is the point in time for me to hand over leadership of the company to a successor and pursue other endeavors. I would like to thank my colleagues in the Management Board and the employees of ams OSRAM who supported me on this successful journey.”

Dr. Margarete Haase, Chairperson of the Supervisory Board of ams OSRAM, noted: “We want to thank Alexander Everke for his tireless commitment and strong leadership over the past years. He has made ams OSRAM a hallmark of innovation, customer orientation, and technological excellence. We wish him all the best for his future.

Aldo Kamper will continue and further develop the strategic focus of the company. His technological competence and management experience form an excellent basis to exploit the opportunities from combining sensing and LED technology. He promoted early stages of the development of microLED technology at OSRAM and will drive the successful industrialization of this technology to benefit customers, shareholders and employees.”

Alexander Everke will actively support the transfer of his responsibilities and remain in an advisory role to the company until year-end 2023. Further details of the handover, which is expected to be implemented during spring 2023, are still in discussion.
