The Felix Schoeller Group launches new organizational structure

The Felix Schoeller Group started with a reorganization following the steps towards increasing internationalization the company has taken in recent years. With production facilities around the world – in Germany, in North America, in China, in Russia, and in India – the German Osnabrück-based specialty paper manufacturer is with immediate effect delegating more responsibility to the regions.

“The Felix Schoeller Group is not just a company with global operations; it is also a global manufacturing company with production sites worldwide,” says the Group’s CEO Hans-Christoph Gallenkamp. “To enable us to act quickly and efficiently on the international stage, we have reduced the number of European representatives on the management board and added international representatives.”

Gallenkamp will in the future, in addition to his role as CEO, also take on the role of CSO, with ultimate responsibility for sales. The other members of the Felix Schoeller Group’s management board are Matthias Breimhorst, who is new to the board and will take on the role of CFO, Georg Haggenmüller as COO, and Stephan Igel as CSO, EMEA. They are joined by the new regional managers Michael Szidat as CEO for North America and Peter Cornelissen as Vice CEO in China.

Guido Hofmeyer and Gerhard Hochstein have left the Felix Schoeller Group’s management board. Both men will retain their functions as executive vice-presidents of Schoeller Technocell GmbH&Co.KG – Hofmeyer as CIO and Hochstein as CTO of the technical central functions.
