Since September 10, 2020, Dr Mark Eikötter (41) has been the new managing director of FIBRO GmbH. This makes him the successor of Mr Jürgen Gurt, who, after many years as Managing Director of FIBRO GmbH, has taken on important tasks as new Head of Human Resources of the LÄPPLE Group.

Dr Mark Eikötter has many years of international management experience and expertise in the machine tool industry as well as in the mechanical and plant engineering. In his role as Managing Director, Dr Eikötter will give new impetus to the important future issues of FIBRO standard parts, in particular as concerns further internationalisation and digitalisation of the business unit, as well as the development of the product portfolio. "I am very pleased to be able to shape the future of FIBRO. Especially in this challenging time for the industry, I think it is important that we strongly align our high quality products with the needs of our customers, " says Dr Mark Eikötter.

"With Dr Eikötter we have found an experienced manager with strong expertise in global distribution of high-technology products and production technology. We are pleased to welcome Dr Eikötter to our team and to be able to use his expert knowledge for our group of companies, ”says Klemens Schmiederer, CEO of LÄPPLE AG. “At the same time, we would like to thank Mr. Gurt for his achievements at FIBRO GmbH. With his many years of experience within the LÄPPLE Group, he will further develop our international organizational structure and the personnel processes. We are very pleased that we were able to win Mr. Gurt for this responsible position."

In the course of the change of managing director, the business areas FIBRO standard parts and FIBRO rotary tables are organizationally separated. With Mr. Joachim Krischke, the previous division manager of FIBRO rotary tables takes over the global management of the business division and is therefore the contact person for all topics in this division.
