Baton handover: Experienced insider takes the helm

Aalten, August 1st, 2023: Dibella already announced a year ago that there would be a change of managing director in the middle of this year. As of 01.08.2023, Carsten Ridder will fill the position of additional managing director together with Stefan Tenbusch. At the same time, the previous managing director Ralf Hellmann will take on an advisory role in the company.

Carsten Ridder is no stranger to the company and has many years of experience as a committed member of the management. In 2001, the banker and graduate in business administration first joined the sister company Bimeco, before moving to Dibella in 2017 as an authorised signatory and member of the management. During this time, he has contributed significantly to the development and implementation of important strategies in the areas of human resources and finance, among others. In addition, he is an active shareholder and lives the company values and goals to a special degree.


Ralf Hellmann will continue to play an important role in the company after his retirement from the management by supporting Dibella in an advisory capacity. His experience and knowledge will remain a valuable resource to ensure the success of the projects already initiated as well as new ones.

Carsten Ridder: "I am very grateful for the trust placed in me and the opportunity to become part of the Dibella executive management team. I will work with full determination, together with the entire Dibella team, to further promote our corporate values and drive growth, while together with our suppliers & partners we increasingly focus on sustainable solutions for our customers that have a positive impact on our society and environment.


Dibella stands for friendly and fair interaction with each other. We work and discuss as a team at eye level. What you appreciate to do, you enjoy doing, and what you enjoy doing, you do well! This statement sums up Dibella and our daily work. We can only accomplish the tasks ahead of us together and I am happy to be part of a highly motivated and committed team."


The entire Dibella team is looking forward to a successful cooperation with Carsten Ridder and is convinced to continue the Dibella success story.
