Alfeld/Hannover, Germany -- Uwe Kahmann, managing director since 2007, and Dr. Michael Gawronski form the new dual leadership team of Fagus GreCon Greten GmbH & Co. KG. Dr. Michael Gawronski is the new managing director of the company as of September 15, 2020. He succeeds Ernst Greten who performed the functions of managing director on an interim basis since the beginning of this year.

Uwe Kahmann will continue to focus on the commercial and sales activities of the Fagus GreCon Group, while Dr. Michael Gawronski will primarily work with the vast technical portfolio.

Dr. Michael Gawronski, with a PhD in physics, was vice president business segment enterprise and industrial projects and member of the board of the Business Group Industrial Solutions of the Leoni AG with headquarters in Nuremberg. Dr. Gawronski will focus on the current and future technology of Fagus GreCon based on his strategic experiences in identifying and the development of new digital business opportunities.

“I’m looking forward to driving the technological development of this very innovative company, and I am confident to provide valuable insights from my years of experience in technologically demanding industries,” Michael Gawronski said.

For the first time in the company’s 109 year history, there is no family owner representation in daily management. “Michael Gawronski and I are fully aware of the enormous responsibility we are undertaking,” Kahmann emphasized. “The values this company stands for will continue to be maintained, with great commitment and the support of the shareholders. These values stand for continuity and will be the basis of our entrepreneurial decisions and positioning as an attractive employer brand.”  See
