Michael Höllermann and Johan P. Cnossen are set to join the management board of thyssenkrupp’s Industrial Solutions business area, effective 1 August 2016.
Michael Höllermann, CEO of the Regional Headquarters South America since 2012, will be the new Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO).
Johan P. Cnossen, who joined Industrial Solutions on 1 May as head of the transformation office for the implementation of ‘planets’, will hold the new position of Chief Operating Officer. With the ‘planets’ program, Industrial Solutions is in a process of reorganisation. The aim is to secure growth, enhance performance, focus more strongly on customers, markets and high-margin service business, and drive culture change within the business area.
According to the company, a central element of this is the further development of the organisational structure towards a modern management structure focused on customers and business fields and integrating the Marine Systems and System Engineering units more closely.
With the appointments, Jens Michael Wegmann, CEO of the Industrial Solutions business area since 15 October 2015, has now filled all board positions: “By appointing Michael Höllermann and Johan P. Cnossen we have gained two very experienced managers to drive forward the reorganisation of Industrial Solutions in a difficult market environment and focus our organisation even more firmly on the needs of customers.”
The new CFO, already in place since 1 June is Stefan Gesing. Also on the board is Dr Hans Christoph Atzpodien, who concentrates on the management of Marine Systems.
