GG Group (Gebauer & Griller) is changing the organizational structure of its management team – Eva Schinkinger (Chief Executive Officer), Holger Fastabend (Chief Sales & Technology Officer) and Harald Buehren (Chief Operations Officer) – with regard to their responsibilities for the various business divisions. GG would like to welcome Harald Buehren as a new member of its management team. He succeeds Axel Blasko. The new organizational structure has been in effect since 1 December 2019.
All global wires and harness plants owned by GG Group will be managed by Harald Buehren as COO, which will facilitate a stronger focus on operational excellence and improvement of best-practice exchange at the plant level, resulting in further general increase in performance. We join our owners in the conviction that this change will optimally position GG for the challenges of 2025. With regard to our long-term goals, Harald Buehren’s many years of experience and sector expertise in global operations, engineering, LEAN implementation and continuous improvement will enable GG to increase its global presence and at the same time achieve all short-term restructuring objectives.
Moreover, we intend to realize additional sales and earnings potential by bundling all sales and development divisions under CSO/CTO Holger Fastabend. This measure will ensure that our product development and innovation will keep their fingers on the pulse of market and customer demands and support our entering new customer relationships through predevelopment projects.
CEO Eva Schinkinger will continue to lead the group’s commercial divisions Finance, Treasury, IT, Personnel, Legal as well as Marketing and Communication, Purchasing and Debtor Management.
The new organizational structure also allows the members of the management team to specialize more closely on their assigned divisions. This will help GG to take advantage of its strengths more effectively and efficiently and to ensure that we are ready to face current and future challenges.
