The Supervisory Board of Wacker Neuson SE and Jan Willem Jongert (member of the Executive Board responsible for sales) have agreed, by fully amicable and mutual consent, for Jongert to step down from his position earlier than planned due to differences in opinion over the concrete implementation of the Group’s existing sales strategy. Jongert took up his role on the Executive Board on April 1, 2016 and withdrew from this position on January 9, 2017.
Effective February 2, 2017, Alexander Greschner (46) succeeded Jongert as CSO of Wacker Neuson SE. Greschner was previously MD at the German production company for light equipment, headquartered in Reichertshofen near Munich. He spent three years in this role and beyond that played a key role in successful group-wide sales projects.
As such, the current Executive Board of Wacker Neuson SE comprises four members. Peksaglam (CEO) is responsible for strategy, mergers & acquisitions, HR, legal, compliance, real estate, investor relations, corporate communication and sustainability. Martin Lehner retains responsibility for R&D, procurement, production and quality. As announced on September 5, 2016, Wilfried Trepels (CFO), took over the areas of finance, auditing and IT from Günther Binder on January 1, 2017. Binder stepped down from the Executive Board on December 31, 2016.
