DFKI has a new CFO

| Press release

The non-profit German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) has a new Chief Financial Officer. Helmut Ditzer has taken over the position of CFO at DFKI in Kaiserslautern and, together with DFKI CEO Prof. Antonio Krüger, has formed the top management of the research institution since May 3.

Helmut Ditzer holds a degree in business administration. He has many years of experience in strategic planning, bid, project, and investment controlling and was Head of Controlling at Swiss Post Solutions for over 12 years.

At DFKI, he is currently responsible for the finance controlling of more than 250 ongoing research projects. He is in charge of the management, coordination, and resource planning of the administrative and commercial area of DFKI with several departments and is thus accountable for all financial and business matters.

Helmut Ditzer will continue to structurally orchestrate DFKI's organic growth so that DFKI, given the economic and societal importance of the results of AI research, is securely positioned as an attractive employer and research partner in the future.
