The generational change in our management has been completed: Hilmar Wagner left the Management Board on 1 May 2020 and moved to the Supervisory Board. He handed over the operational management completely to his son Magnus Wagner and Rolf Hansmann. Markus Berkemeier, Head of Customer Service and Project Management, was granted power of attorney in this process.
“As a family business, it is important to us that our business decisions continuously follow a common thread”, emphasizes our company founder Hilmar Wagner. This is why we have set ourselves the goal in autumn 2017 of placing the management of the company in the hands of the next generation. “My retirement from the Management Board has now heralded the final stage of this journey,” says the new Supervisory Board member. Since May 2020, son Magnus has been managing the operative business of the company alone with his fellow board member Rolf Hansmann.
