It is the first time in the company’s history of more than 100 years that there is no owner family representation in the management.

Managing director of the company since 2007, Mr Kahmann will focus again on the commercial and sales activities of the Fagus-GreCon Group, while Dr Gawronski is the new managing director of the company and thereby succeeds Ernst Greten who performed these functions as managing partner on an interim basis since the beginning of this year.

Dr Gawronski will primarily deal with a technical portfolio. A physicist with a PhD, Dr Gawronski was vice president business segment enterprise & industrial projects and member of the board of the Business Group Industrial Solutions of the LEONI AG with headquarters in Nuremberg.

Dr Gawronski will look to bring his strategic experience to Fagus-GreCon in the fields of identification and development of new digital business fields.

“I’m looking forward to driving forward the technological development of this very innovative company, and I am confident to be able to give valuable impetus thanks to my experience in technologically demanding areas of many years,” said Dr Gawronski.

“The values this company stands for will continue to be maintained, with great commitment and the support of the shareholders,” added Mr Kahmann. “These values stand for continuity and will be the basis of our entrepreneurial decisions and positioning as an attractive employer brand”.
