The Supervisory Board of Michael Weinig AG has appointed Gregor Baumbusch as Chairman of the Management Board effective Jan. 1.
The decision comes just weeks after his predecessor, Wolfgang Pöschl, resigned from his position for personal reasons.
Baumbusch has been appointed by the supervisory board to adapt the corporate strategy to the new challenges in the market and to further develop WEINIG with regard to digitization. This will ensure a sustainable strengthening of the WEINIG Group with the two brands WEINIG and HOLZ-HER.
“The entire Supervisory Board has full confidence that Mr. Baumbusch, in his new position, will align the company in this sense and lead it into a successful future,” said board chair Thomas Bach.
In his new role as CEO, Baumbusch will also continue to assume his previous responsibility for sales and marketing as well as function as Chief Technology Officer until this position can be filled.
