The ENGEL Group has announced changes to its board, appointing Dr. Gerhard Dimmler as CTO, who will be responsible for the research and digitalisation divisions. Simon Zeilberger will also join the ENGEL Group as CFO on April 1.
The ENGEL Group has reshuffled its board today. The change sees Dr. Gerhard Dimmler, previously Vice President for Research and Development, appointed to the board as CTO. He is taking over the development division from CEO Dr. Stefan Engleder and will also be responsible for digitalisation on top of this.
“Gerhard Dimmler has played a decisive role in shaping ENGEL’s research and development in recent years and has made a significant contribution to ENGEL being perceived as a technology leader in global markets,” as Stefan Engleder emphasises. “Bringing Mr. Dimmler into the management team is an important step for the sustainable implementation of our corporate strategy.”
There is a further change in the commercial division. CFO Markus Richter will leave the company at his own request at the end of March, the end of the current fiscal year. His successor is Simon Zeilberger, who will join the ENGEL Group as Commercial Director on April 1.
Zeilberger gained extensive management experience, primarily in the metal and steel industry. Most recently, he was responsible for the commercial division of a large family foundation as a member of the executive board and management and had overall responsibility for the industrial branch of the group of companies.
“We are delighted to have gained a very experienced successor in the person of Simon Zeilberger, who is already rooted in the metal industry. He will carefully shape the commercial agendas of the ENGEL Group,” says Stefan Engleder. “We thank Mr. Richter for his great commitment and our excellent and very successful cooperation during the past five years.”
The production division will continue to be managed by Joachim Metzmacher as CPO.
As an international family business, ENGEL stands for a long-term corporate orientation. Stability as an employer combined with a high level of innovation as a solution provider for the international injection moulding industry characterises the group of companies. The current board changes do justice to this orientation.
