After six years at the helm, co-founder and CEO Roland Folz is waving goodbye to Solaris next year. He will leave the company on April 30, 2023, to be succeeded by Carsten Höltkemeyer, former chairman of the supervisory board of lending platform auxmoney.
“Now is the right time to start the next chapter with a new CEO at the helm,” Roland Folz said. He added that the company’s progress in 2022 would set the stage for its development in the coming years under Höltkemeyer’s leadership. Folz headed the Berlin-based company for a total of six years.
His successor starts on November 1 of this year as a member of the Executive Board and designated CEO. Before joining auxmoney, Hoeltkemeyer spent almost seven years at Commerzbank and ten years at Barclaycard, where he was responsible for the German business.
