Executive Board members Norbert Suritsch and Josef Hobelsberger to concentrate on their Board activities within the holding company of Müller BBM Group as of 1 January 2020

By the end of 2019, transition phase activities in the management of both Müller-BBM Projektmanagement GmbH and Müller-BBM VibroAkustik Systeme GmbH were successfully completed, so that Norbert Suritsch (Chairman of the Executive Board of Müller-BBM Holding AG) and his fellow Board member Josef Hobelsberger could give up their positions as Managing Directors. Still, of course, they will continue to support the two companies with their expertise and advice. This new situation will enable Mr. Suritsch and Mr. Hobelsberger to increasingly concentrate on Board activities in Müller-BBM Holding AG from 1 January 2020.

"With this step, the reorganisation of our group of companies with its three business segments "engineering services", "products" and "plant engineering", has been completed", explains the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Müller-BBM Holding AG, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gerhard Müller. According to him, the current development of the companies within the Müller-BBM group shows that they are positioned in a solid and sustainable way. "The further development of future-oriented business fields together with the resources of experienced and highly competent employees are central prerequisites for economic efficiency and technological leadership. We would like to thank Norbert Suritsch and Josef Hobelsberger for their very successful and formative work as Managing Directors of the companies." He added that "we are pleased to see that the transition to their successors could not have been accomplished any better, so that now they can entirely dedicate themselves to their work in the Executive Board."

Both members of the Executive Board see the focus of their activities in a fresh interpretation of Müller-BBM Group’s roots and in a consistent strategic positioning, particularly with regard to the upcoming digital transformation, which will affect all business segments. "By concentrating on the activities in the Executive Board, we increase our management capacities and intend to expand our portfolios of consulting services, products and engineering even more intensely in the future", so Norbert Suritsch and Josef Hobelsberger on their strengthened mandate.

As from 1 January 2020, Eva-Maria Schmitz is the sole Managing Director of Müller-BBM Projektmanagement GmbH. She has been a member of the management since July 2019 and is perfectly linked to industrial clients and the public sector.

Josef Hobelsberger is sure that, given their experience, his long-standing management colleagues Günter Lang and Andreas Ansorge will take best care of Müller-BBM VibroAkustik Systeme GmbH in order to guarantee continuity and the company’s strategic orientation towards new topics.
