Witzenmann repositions for the future


After the sudden, unexpected death of the chairman of the board of management, Dr. Hans-Eberhard Koch, Witzenmann is repositioning for the future with four managing directors.

The chairmanship will be assumed by Dr. Andreas Kämpfe, who is responsible for Strategy, Technology, Innovation and Marketing. Dipl.-Ing. Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing. Philip Paschen becomes deputy chairman of the board of management and is responsible for Production and Digital Transformation. Dr. Gerhard Flöck is responsible for the Finance, Human Resources and Purchasing divisions. From 1 October 2017, Dr. Eberhard Wildermuth will join the board of management and will be responsible for the Sales division there.

This repositioning exploits existing opportunities and takes future challenges into account, such as the further internationalisation of the Witzenmann Group, the opening up of new markets and applications independent of the combustion engine and the implementation of the digital transformation. It is thus building on a successful growth trajectory, with the aim of continuing this into the future.
