Personnel Bachmann retires from DMG Mori Seiki executive board
He was responsible for technology and production for nearly a decade.
Machine tool builder DMG Mori Seiki has announced that Günter Bachmann, the member of the executive board responsible for technology and production, has stepped down.
Bachmann retired at the end of last year and has been replaced by Christian Thönes, the company said.
Bachmann took over the board’s technology and production portfolio in October 2006. Before that, he spent 12 years as a managing director at DMG Mori Seiki.
With a degree in mechanical engineering, Bachmann started out in the production department at what is now known as Deckel Maho Seebach in Thuringia, Germany. He eventually rose to head of production and then managing director and made the company one of the most modern machine tool firms in East Germany.
