Lars Weyer has been appointed as a new executive board member and chief financial officer of Arri. The announcement was made by the supervisory board of the global film technology company. In this position, Weyer is responsible for the finance, human resources, IT, and facility management departments.
“The expansion of the executive board to include a CFO underscores the path we have already taken towards a faster and more flexible organization with strong business units,” said Dr. Hans-Joerg Bullinger, chairman of Arri’s supervisory board. “We are very pleased to be able to fill this important position internally with a proven expert and experienced colleague like Lars Weyer. In his new role, we wish him every success and a sure hand in his decision-making.”
Weyer said, “I would like to thank the owners and the supervisory board for their trust and am very much looking forward to my new tasks. It is very important to me to create the best possible conditions so that Arri can continue to be a successful technology company in the future.”
Weyer joined Arri in 2019, initially in an advisory capacity as part of the rental US restructuring, later becoming head of finance for the Arri Group, responsible for controlling, accounting, treasury, consolidation, and tax.
