Merck KGaA appoints Joachim Christ as head of corporate controlling

He will report to the German pharma company's chief financial officer Matthias Zachert

Joachim Christ is to join Merck KGaA as head of corporate controlling.

He will report to the German pharma company's chief financial officer Matthias Zachert when he moves to Merck in January.

Christ began his industry career at Hoechst, and later its successor company Aventis, holding roles such as positions of controller for a strategic business unit and regional controller for Europe/Middle East/Africa, as well as controller for global production.

He joins Merck from Lanxess, where he has served since December 1, 2004, leading corporate controlling at the speciality chemicals company.

“I am pleased that Joachim Christ is joining Merck to take on this important position,” said Matthias Zachert. “He is ideally qualified to develop the controlling function at Merck into a true partner to our businesses. One of our overriding aims is to further develop and substantially modernise our finance organisation.”
