EDAG CEO Werner Kropsbauer to join supervisory board at the end of the year
At the end of 2014, Mr. Werner Kropsbauer (CEO of EDAG Engineering AG) will be joining the supervisory board of the world's largest independent engineering service provider, while continuing to advise and support its shareholder, ATON GmbH, in the development of the engineering segment.
The 61-year-old manager from the automotive industry (ex Daimler Manager and CEO of MBtech) took over the position of CEO at the beginning of the year, so as to be able to organise and direct the integration of Rücker GmbH with its global workforce of over 2,000 into EDAG Engineering AG. The merger was successfully completed in the course of 2014. At the beginning of 2015, Jörg Ohlsen (Dipl.-Ing.), who has been a managing director since 2008, and a member of EDAG's executive board since July 2014, will assume the position of Spokesman of the Board and CEO, and manage the company together with Harald Poeschke (COO) and Jürgen Vogt (CFO).
