Knecht & Müller, exclusive distributor of Hoya in Switzerland and one of Switzerland's leading lens manufacturers, announced at the beginning of June that the operational and financial control of the company is again 100 percent in the hands of the Müller-Knecht family. This follows the recent departure of the company's former chief executive, Thomas Fischer, who held a small minority stake in business. Peter Müller-Knecht, who previously led the supervisory board, assumed the operational management of the company last month. He is supported by his children, Christina Müller and Niels Müller, who are both members of the executive board. Christina Müller remains marketing director and Niels Müller project manager for technology and production.
