Mr. Joachim Gunkel is no longer a member of the Management Board of Ziemann Group, one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of brewing plants. The relationship between the Managing Director and the the Ludwigsburg-based company was terminated as of Wednesday by “mutual consent”. “There had been differences of opinion regarding the management style”, it was reported by several newspapers. Until a successor for Joachim Gunkel is appointed Managing Director Mr. Klaus Gehrig will act as provisional Head of the Ziemann Group’s sales and marketing department.
“Things really started to move” for Ziemann in 2010 particularly in the second half of the year when orders “really boomed”, the company reported in March. This was also due to the persistence and energy with which Ziemann pursues its goals – for instance greater diversification, the development of new sectors such as filling and packaging and a constant optimization of technolgies. The result: Ziemann said it made “considerable progress”.
