“With immediate effect, Dipl.-Kfm. Jürgen Müller and Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing. Olaf Hartwig join the management board of Robert Bürkle GmbH, Freudenstadt. Jürgen Müller as CFO is responsible for the commercial area and finances, and Olaf Hartwig as COO is in charge of production and materials management,” explains Dipl.-Ing. Jürgen Schröer. Still the responsible Managing Director for Sales/Marketing and Technology (CSO/CTO) is Olaf Rohrbeck. In addition, Rohrbeck represents the Freudenstadt company to the public as Chairman of the Management Board.
Managing directors Müller and Hartwig are highly experienced executives in their fields. They worked successfully for various market leaders in the consulting, medical technology and automotive sectors. From his current role as CEO Schröer will assume the chairmanship of the company’s Advisory Board as of July, to coordinate developing the medium and long-term positioning. At first, he will put the focus especially on the further development and expansion of Bürkle’s important Shanghai location. “The development in China is very promising for us,” comments Schröer on his new assignment.
In close coordination and with the support of the Munich-based private equity shareholder Auctus Capital Partners, the Bürkle management focuses on structural and organic dynamics. Key product segments, such as surface finishing and press technologies, are being systematically expanded. “With our strengthened management structure, we are advancing the development of the company. Above all, we intend to gain momentum in the international markets,” says Rohrbeck, presenting core elements of the Bürkle strategy.
