eversyn today announced the appointment of Dr. Ing. Volker Landschütze as its Chief Executive Officer, following an intensive talent search supported by Max-Planck-Innovation. For the first time since founded, eversyn has its first CEO. In the upcoming year, Volker together with the founding team will prepare the spin-off process for eversyn from Max Planck Society.

In the last years, he managed the production of enzymes and carbohydrates with aevotis GmbH and later evoxx technologies GmbH.
"We are delighted to finally welcome Volker on board as our new CEO. In the past, he already showed his dedicated support for eversyn in the consulting role for our initial business ideas, concepts as well as technical aspects. Based on the previous cooperation, our founding team looks forward to Volker in his new role as not only the guiding light as he used to be but actually the captain of our ship namely eversyn"
