A quote from the document:

At its meeting on September 29, 1998 the Supervisory Board of Leica
Camera AG, Solms appointed Hanns-Peter Cohn (50) as the new Chairman of
the Board of Management. He shall take up this appointment at the end of
1998. <SNIP> Since 1984, Hanns-Peter Cohn has been the General Manager
of Vitra GmbH, Weil am Rhein, which is an internationally operating
furniture manufacturer. Earlier, Mr. Cohn, who is an educated
businessman, held management positions at Olympia AG, Wilhelmshaven and
its sales company in Frankfurt, as well as at Wang Deutschland GmbH and
Rank Xerox GmbH. Mr. Cohn's main focus is on profit-oriented brand
positioning and development. He has the reputation of being a consistent
advocate of dealer distribution. "For me it is a very attractive task to
accompany the world brands of Leica and Minox into the next millennium.
Our clear objective is to increase the innovation strength and
profitability of Leica Camera and thus to serve the interests of our
customers, employees and shareholders".
