ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions has announced changes to its management board. Dr Hans Christoph Atzpodien will concentrate on the Marine Systems business unit while Jens Michael Wegmann will take over as CEO and Chairman of the Industrial Solutions management board. Wegmann will have responsibility for Strategy, Communications, Technology/Innovation/Sustainability, Quality & Processes, and Compliance. CFO Jörg Schönewolf will additionally be responsible for Purchasing and Export Control. Martin Hilbig will continue in an unchanged role as CHRO.
ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions has initiated a comprehensive transformation and growth programme. Its recently combined business units Resource Technologies and Process Technologies, the large-scale plant engineering business, aims to collaborate more effectively to exploit competitive advantages provided by closer integration between regions and operating businesses. Sales efforts are to be strengthened and the share of high-margin service business increased. Marine Systems is competing to win a number of major projects and at the same time working on a high order backlog, which is the reason for the increased focus by Dr Atzpodien.
