Rheinmetall Group

Employed by the Rheinmetall Group since 01.01.1999. The individual stations/functions are briefly summarized here:  

After studying business administration in Munich, I joined Pierburg GmbH in Neuss at the beginning of 1999, initially as Controller. Other key positions within the Group included CFO of a joint venture in Shanghai, China (2001 - 2004), CFO of the Group's Casting Division (2007 - 2009, Managing Director of KS ATAG GmbH) and President of the American subsidiary Pierburg Inc. in Fountain Inn, SC, USA (2010 - 2013). At the end of 2013, I returned to Neuss and became Chief Purchasing Officer (CPO) of the Rheinmetall Group for non-production materials and at the same time Head of Purchasing for Rheinmetall's Sensors and Actuators division (2014 - 2019). From February 2020 to December 2023, I headed Rheinmetall's Materials and Trade division. In this function I am, among other things, Managing Director of KS Kolbenschmidt GmbH. Since 01.01.2023 I have also been Chief Purchasing Officer and since 01.01.2024 CEO of the newly founded Central Division for the entire Rheinmetall Group.
