Schubert has served as REpower's CTO since its founding 12 years ago. Until a successor is named, REpower CEO Andreas Nauen will oversee the company's technology portfolio.

"In the wind turbine manufacturing business, Matthias Schubert is one of the giants - he
is one of the most highly respected engineers and innovators of his time," says Tulsi Tanti, chairman of Suzlon Group and REpower’s supervisory board. “It has been a genuine privilege and pleasure for me to have worked so closely with Matthias over the years. His contribution to REpower specifically - and the group, more broadly - is significant. We thank him for his service to us and wish him happiness and prosperity when he retires from REpower in the spring."
