After 43 years with Rosenbauer, 30 of them at the company´s helm as its CEO,
Julian Wagner will be retiring from the Executive Board for health reasons at
the end of September 2011. The Supervisory Board has decided to appoint Dr.
Dieter Siegel as the next CEO.

With his great personal commitment and entrepreneurial initiative, Julian Wagner
has been instrumental in driving Rosenbauer´s transformation from a small
export-orientated firm with annual revenues of 72 Mio Euro (1981) into an
exchange-listed global-playing Group posting revenues of 596 Mio Euro.
Rosenbauer today is one of the world´s leading manufacturers of fire-fighting
vehicles.

Among the key steps taken in the course of his career which paved the way for
the company´s successful development were
•its clear strategic positioning as a manufacturer of fire-fighting equipment;
•systematically building up its globe-spanning sales system;
•turning itself from a `KG´ (partnership under a legal name) into an
exchange-listed `AG´ (joint-stock company);
•internationalization of the Group, marked by its entry into the US and other
markets;
•the decision to build itself into a `full-liner´ by taking over the aerials
manufacturer Metz Aerials, and
•developing the Group to become the sector´s technological and innovational
leader, with many new developments to its name in all its lines of business.

As previously announced, Executive Board Member Manfred Schwetz will also be
retiring at the end of September 2011. This means that the Executive Board of
Rosenbauer International AG will  thenceforth be made up of Robert Kastil (CFO)
and Gottfried Brunbauer (CTO), alongside Dr. Dieter Siegel as CEO.

Besides his responsibilities as Executive Board Chairman (CEO), Dieter Siegel
will be in charge of the Specialty Vehicles and Fire & Safety Equipment
segments, and of strategy, marketing, personnel and corporate communications.
CFO Robert Kastil will continue to be responsible for finance, risk management,
the information systems and investor relations. He will also be taking on
responsibility for the Business Development segment and internal audit.
Responsibility for technical matters, including logistics, innovation, quality
and environmental management, continues to lie with CTO Gottfried Brunbauer, who
is also in charge of the Municipal Vehicles, Aerials and Fire-fighting
Components segments.

Julian Wagner will remain closely associated with Rosenbauer, continuing to
assist the company in various matters, in a consulting capacity.
