Following almost nine years as Managing Director of Putzmeister, Dr G. Karch sees his task as fulfilled, after he assumed the role of CEO in 2013 at a time when the company was in a difficult economic situation. Putzmeister and Sany Heavy Industry would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr G. Karch for his outstanding work and contribution over the past few years. Dr G. Karch played a key role in promoting the restructure and strategic alignment of the company in all main areas and gained a high level of recognition from the owners, in the company and among partners and customers worldwide. Martin Knötgen will take up the chairmanship of the Executive Board on a provisional basis, and will assume the role of CEO of Putzmeister Holding and perform it in addition to his role as CEO for Sany Europe. Dr Ch. Danninger, who has been acting as CFO of Putzmeister Holding since June 2017, will continue to manage the financial section, which also incorporates the IT Department.
