Beiersdorf appoints new CFO


Beiersdorf has announced the appointment of Dessi Temperley to the executive board, effective July 1, 2018.

Temperley has over 20 years of experience in various financial management roles and was most recently the regional CFO of Nestlé Purina for Europe, Middle East and North Africa before becoming head of investor relations.

She will be taking over from Jesper Andersen, who will be completing his term with the Hamburg-based company in June.

“Beiersdorf thanks Jesper Andersen for his lasting contribution towards financial professionalism and efficiency,” Reinhard Pöllath, chairman of the supervisory board, said. “With her deep career background and rich international experience, Dessi Temperley will further strengthen a transparent finance function, make the best use of data and financial resources for the core of Beiersdorf: Superior skin-care for everybody.”

Temperley studied economics at the American University in Bulgaria and later obtained her MBA from Henley Business School in the UK. She is a U.K. chartered accountant who began her career with Shell Bulgaria in 1994, which was then followed by a tenure at Cable & Wireless plc before joining Nestlé in 2004.

“We welcome Dessi Temperley to our management team. We are confident that with her broad financial expertise she will contribute substantially to further advancing Beiersdorf’s success and growth,” Stefan F. Heidenreich, CEO of Beiersdorf AG, said. “My personal best wishes go to Jesper Andersen who was an excellent CFO for Beiersdorf and a successful contributor to our path of profitable growth during the past years. Our management team is very grateful for his dedication and achievements.”
