The Krohne Group is appointing a new Chairman of the Advisory Board and a changed Executive Board. The changes herald a generational change in the family-run company and ensure that the Krohne Group will continue to be successfully positioned to meet the challenges of the market in the future.
After almost 40 years as Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Krohne Group, Prof. Dr. Rolf Theenhaus has retired. The Advisory Board and all employees thank Rolf Theenhaus for his commitment and creative capabilities, with which he has continuously introduced and promoted innovations and new business areas for Krohne.
Michael Rademacher-Dubbick, who has successfully led the Krohne Group for over 25 years as managing shareholder, is the new chairman of the advisory board. With this step, he underlines the constant and close connection of the owner family with the company and its activities.
Dr. Attila Bilgic is the new Chief Executive Officer and Speaker of Krohne Group's executive board. He has been on the Board since 2017 and has been Chief Technical Officer for KROHNE since 2009. Dr. Bilgic is responsible for the areas of research and development, intellectual property, production, quality management, marketing and product management. Stephan Neuburger, member of the Management Board since 1999, will drive growth in new business areas as Chief Business Development Officer.
In addition, Ingo Wald and Ansgar Hoffmann are newly appointed to the executive board. As Chief Financial Officer, Ingo Wald heads the finance and human resources departments. He has been Managing Director for Krohne Messtechnik GmbH since 2006 and will continue to hold this position in parallel to his executive board activities for the Krohne Group. As the fourth board member, Ansgar Hoffmann takes over responsibility for sales of the Krohne Group as Chief Sales Officer and will also be responsible for IT.
