Simba Dickie announces CFO

Fürth – Founded in 1982 as “Simba Toys” with five employees, the international toy firm Simba Dickie Group entered its third generation in 2021 when Florian Sieber took over as CEO from his father Michael Sieber. The new generation of leaders is now set to welcome a new member with the appointment of Moritz Duschl to the senior management team.

On 1 May 2024, Moritz Duschl (36) will become CFO of the Simba Dickie Group. His father Manfred Duschl (69), who has been working for the company since 1989 and is responsible for managing the Group’s finances, will hand over his position to his son. Over the next 12 months, Manfred Duschl will gradually withdraw from day-to-day business and management.

Florian Sieber, Managing Director and CEO of the Simba Dickie Group, thanked the outgoing CFO and welcomed the new member of the senior management team: “Over the past decade, Moritz Duschl has been preparing diligently for his new role within our senior management team, and will continue to be supported by his father following his appointment. We are thus in the fortunate position of being able to ensure a seamless transition that combines extensive expertise and experience with new insights and ideas, laying a solid foundation for our future journey. We would like to thank Manfred Duschl for his tremendous commitment, loyalty and empathy over the past decades, during which he has played a key role in the growth and success of the Simba Dickie Group alongside my father Michael Sieber, Uwe Weiler and myself, supported by his entire team and other members of senior management.”

From 1 May 2024, the Group Board will consist of Florian Sieber, Manfred and Moritz Duschl, and Uwe Weiler.

Moritz Duschl is looking forward to the challenges of his new role: “Over the past 10 years, I’ve had the opportunity to prepare thoroughly for my new role, which I am very grateful for. By working closely with the Board of the Simba Dickie Group, I have been able to benefit from their extensive experience, and I am looking forward to continuing my father’s successful work while also contributing new ideas.”
