Retirement of Managing Director

After a career spanning 47 years, the last six of which were spent as a successful Managing Director of SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH, in Gelsenkirchen/Germany, Karl-Heinz Fiegenbaum was given a fitting send-off into retirement in the presence of approximately 70 staff and with the best wishes of the President of the Group, Franz-W. Aumund. Karl-Heinz Fiegenbaum became Managing Director in July 2011 with responsibility for the sales and commercial side of the business. A new sales organisation under the campaign name “SCHADE goes mega” was built up with the aim of marketing not only single machines but complete solution packages. This led to large projects with various customers and orders, in particular from Asia, in the range of tens of millions of Euros.

 

The exit strategy was well prepared and the transition was implemented by Karl-Heinz Fiegenbaum before his departure. His successor, Dr. Christoph Seifert, had joined the business as Technical Managing Director in February 2015, and he has now moved across to take responsibility for sales and commercial management. On 1st March this year, Klaus Paul joined SCHADE Lagertechnik to take over from Dr. Seifert as Technical Managing Director.
