After a career spanning 47 years, the last six of which were spent as a successful Managing Director of SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH, in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, Karl-Heinz Fiegenbaum was given a fitting send-off into retirement in the presence of the President of the Group, Franz-W. Aumund.
Karl-Heinz Fiegenbaum became Managing Director in July 2011: “Your time as Managing Director has seen a marked growth in turnover, a significant increase in headcount and a transition to the company’s new strategic vision.” This was how Franz-W. Aumund described the major developments at SCHADE under the leadership of Mr Fiegenbaum.
A new sales organisation under the campaign name “SCHADE goes mega” was built up with the aim of marketing single machines and complete solution packages. This led to large projects with various customers and orders, in particular from Asia, in the range of tens of millions of Euros.
The exit strategy was implemented by Mr Fiegenbaum before his departure. His successor, Dr Christoph Seifert, had joined the business as Technical Managing Director in February 2015, and he has now moved across to take responsibility for sales and commercial management. On 1 March 2017, Klaus Paul joined SCHADE Lagertechnik to take over from Dr. Seifert as Technical Managing Director.
