11.02.2019 W&H creates post of chief technology officer

Windmöller & Hölscher, Lengerich, Germany, has appointed Dr Falco Paepenmüller to the new position of chief technology officer. He will take up his newly acquired responsibilities from beginning of April. His successor as head of the extrusion business unit will be Dr Torsten Schmitz. Paepenmüller will be in charge of the three business units: extrusion, printing and converting.

As of April 2019, the W&H management board will comprise Dr Jürgen Vutz, chairman; Peter Steinbeck, chief sales and service officer; and Dr Falco Paepenmüller, chief technology officer. The position of chief financial officer will be filled during the course of 2019. Theodor Determann, the previous incumbent, left W&H earlier this year.

Paepenmüller has held various management positions at W&H since 2007. "The addition of a chief technology officer emphasises our focus on innovation. With faster innovation cycles and more connected processes, a separate management board position has become more important for the expansion of technology leadership," explained Dr Vutz.


The W&H management board as from 1st April this year: Dr Jürgen Vutz, Peter Steinbeck and Dr Falco Paepenmüller
