Change in the management board of the LINDE + WIEMANN Group
After more than twenty years of successful commitment in different positions, Dr. Oliver Diez, member of the management board responsible for production, leaves the company at the end of the year to take up new professional challenges outside the automobile industry.
Michael Lindner will succeed Dr. Oliver Diez as new member of the management board for production as of 1 January 2020. “I am really looking forward to this responsible task as member of the board of such a prestigious partner of the automobile industry. I am highly motivated to continue the efficient development of the operative business processes with the team to be able to reach the best possible results even in the presently difficult market environment.”
Michael Lindner is a competent production expert with more than 20 years leadership experiences at national and international locations. The delivery range for renowned OEMs included structure and chassis components. He has technology competences in cold forming as well as in hot forming and stands out for his comprehensive expertise in production and quality excellence.
Besides Dr. Oliver Diez, also Dr. Jürgen Koch will leave the company at the end of the year after expiry of his two-year contract. During the last two years he successfully laid the foundations for the increased financial challenges of an internationally growing company and could create the basis of a further positive development for the company.
As of 1 January 2020 Stephan Vrublovsky will be his successor as board member for finances, IT and procurement. “The automobile industry is developing at a rapid pace. The new reality is volatile and digital. I am glad to be responsible for setting the course into the future of Linde + Wiemann,” the new CFO describes his vision.
Thanks to his professional experience gained at financial institutes and in an internationally acting and renowned auditing company, he has comprehensive knowledge in all areas of financing instruments and structures of industrial companies. As Chief Financial Officer of a supplier in the automobile industry, he could successfully go public by a sustainable M&A strategy.
Ulrich Schoof, CEO and chairman of the management board, thanks the two outgoing board members for their successful efforts of the past years and wishes them much success for the new career challenges.
