The Management Board of HSM has a new formation. Hermann Schwelling, Partner and Managing Director of HSM GmbH + Co. KG, and Matthias Wochner now together form the company’s Management Board.
Matthias Wochner, Head of Finance and Administration since 2011, was appointed to the Management Board at the end of June 2013. In addition to his responsibility for Finances, he will now also be responsible for the areas Sales and Distribution as well as Marketing worldwide. Hermann Schwelling, who established the company in 1971, will keep responsibility for the business areas Production, Technology, Materials Management and Personnel.
In his new function, Matthias Wochner has taken over the responsibilities of the former members of the Management Board Irene Dengler and Dietmar Dengler. Mr and Mrs Dengler were appointed into the Management Board six years ago and have now decided to follow new paths. With her longstanding service of over 30 years with the company, Irene Dengler is among those who have played an important role in shaping the success of HSM. She will be giving up her position as Member of the Management Board by mutual agreement on 31 October 2013 due to differences in opinion regarding the strategic direction of the company. Dietmar Dengler was with the company from 2002 until June 2013. In the course of his career, he held various positions in Strategic Planning and Sales and was appointed to the Management Board in September 2007, together with Irene Dengler. Hermann Schwelling looks back with gratitude on many years of successful collaboration with Irene and Dietmar Dengler.
Matthias Wochner was already familiar with HSM from 2003 on prior to his position as Chief Financial Officer. During his vocational training, the industrial engineer was occupied in several technical and commercial departments at HSM, among others also in the HSM branches in England and the USA. Before returning to HSM to take on the position of Head of Finance and Administration at HSM, he held a position as head of group commercial sales with the kitchen manufacturer ALNO AG.
