FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Klaus Keysberg, finance chief of Thyssenkrupp’s (TKAG.DE) materials trading unit, will become the division’s boss from next year, the company said on Tuesday.

Keysberg will succeed the unit’s current Chief Executive Joachim Limberg, whose retirement had been previously announced by the company, on Jan. 1.

Thyssenkrupp Materials Services will form the heart of Thyssenkrupp following a planned spin-off of its capital goods businesses: elevators, car parts and plant engineering.
