The Board of Directors has swelled the ranks at Michael Weinig AG. As of 1 January 2011 Stephan Weber is a member of corporate management at the world leader for machines and systems for solid wood processing. As Chief Sales Officer (CSO) Stephan Weber is responsible for Sales at Marketing, working alongside CEO Wolfgang Pöschl and CFO Karl Wachter

The 47 year old knows wood as a material inside and out. Following an apprenticeship as a carpenter, he studied wood technology at the polytechnic university in Rosenheim. On completion of his studies, he worked in several well-known companies for machinery and plant engineering. In recent years he made a name for himself as CEO and COO; his previous position was managing director in a division of the Horstmann Group.

Chairman of the Board Dr. Thomas Bach welcomed him with the words "We are delighted to have found a colleague in Mr. Weber who combines technical proficiency with personal qualities". Weinig made its choice based on the extensive experience of the new board member in machines and systems for the wood processing industry. Corporate management in Tauberbischofsheim is convinced that Stephan Weber combines the ideal qualities not simply to maintain the leading position of Weinig in the world, despite the ever-increasing pressure of international competitors, but to expand it.
