TaurusHolding today announced that Chief Financial Officer Brian Cook has left the company by mutual consent.

This separation has occurred now in light of the fact that the restructuring of the KirchGruppe of companies is increasingly being managed by the insolvency advisors.

Dr. Dieter Hahn, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board of TaurusHolding GmbH & Co. KG, said: ‘We thank Brian for his huge effort in the face of very difficult circumstances. I wish him good luck in his future career.’

Brian Cook said: ‘It has been a very challenging nine months. At the TaurusHolding level, we have been working towards a comprehensive resolution of the group’s problems. Now this job will be completed at each of the subsidiaries on a company-by-company basis. I feel that now is the time to take up new opportunities in private equity or investment banking.’
