The Haselmeier Group has decided to reinforce and reorganise its executive board. Mr Gert Weber has been nominated by the board of directors of Medico Invest AG as chief executive officer (CEO) of the Haselmeier Group.

This nomination is effective starting 1 July 2015. Mr Weber brings more than 20 years of experience in the manufacturing and technological industries and has filled various executive management positions, the last being managing director and vice-president responsible for operations and information technology (IT) at Avnet TS (formerly Magirus Group).

With his experience and expertise, Mr. Weber shall contribute to strengthen Haselmeier’s position and performance in the medical device industry and beyond.

Mr Weber joined Haselmeier as chief information officer (CIO) on 1 May 2015, and will continue to lead Haselmeier’s efforts to build up efficient organization and state-of-the-art IT.

Furthermore, Haselmeier offers more clarity to its quality organisation and establishes two subgroups covering respectively quality management and quality assurance, with dedicated teams and leadership. Both groups will report into Mr Matthias Meissner who has endorsed the function of chief quality officer (CQO), effective since 1 July 2015 and on an interim basis. Mr Meissner replaces Mr Markus Dorsch who contributed to build Haselmeier’s quality management over the past ten years. Mr Meissner has been instrumental in the development of Haselmeier’s infrastructure and the installation of efficient manufacturing capabilities, and will support the installation of a global quality management.

Mr Siegfried Eichinger has been appointed chief financial officer (CFO), effective since 1 July 2015. In his extended CFO role, Mr Eichinger will lead Haselmeier’s global finance and controlling, and will be responsible for the group’s human resources management.
