Denker will now take over his position, who has already been working as CEO at NETZSCH Pumps & Systems since April 1, 2023, as part of a transitional phase. The new CEO has 20 years of management experience in internationally operating technology companies such as Airbus or Mannesmann. Before starting work in Waldkraiburg, he was CEO of the Manaseer Group in Jordan, where he transformed from a regionally active company to a group of companies focusing on exports.
