Trumpf is expanding its Group Management increasing the number of group managing directors from five to six. Heinz-Jürgen Prokop (58) and Christian Schmitz (57) are going to join the company’s most important managing board. Both have been active in the company for many years. This means that in the future, the family company will be managed by three family members and three external managers.
For Labor Director Nicola Leibinger-Kammüller, this expansion of the Managing Board is a clear commitment toward providing the company with additional creative space for future issues, enabling it to continue playing a key role in the digital transformation of mechanical engineering: “Our primary focus so far has been on products and services. With the new organizational structure we are taking things a step further and reinforcing our digital interaction with our customers. That is the key message to the market.”
