Changes in the Central Managing Board of the Würth Group
The Central Managing Board of the Würth Group will be restructured as of 15 February 2021: Dr. Steffen Greubel, Member of the Central Managing Board of the Würth Group, will leave the Group.
Since joining the Würth Group in 2014, Dr. Steffen Greubel has contributed greatly to the Würth Group’s successful growth over the years. “We are very grateful for his work and dedication and wish him all the best for the future,” said Bettina Würth, Chairwoman of the Advisory Board of the Würth Group.
With regard to the future growth of the company, the Supervisory Board and the Advisory Board of the Würth Group have decided to expand the Central Managing Board to five members. The Würth Line will be split up into the two units Craft and Industry. In the future, Würth Line Craft will be headed by Dr. Jan Allmann (37), with Rainer Bürkert (54) taking over Würth Line Industry. Both colleagues have been members of the Executive Board, the Würth Group’s operational management body.
