Cutting Tools Mapal expands management board
Siegfried Wendel and Jacek Kruszynski join the precision tools manufacturer's management board.
Germany –Mapal has used the past few months as an opportunity to reorganise and restructure. According to the company, the new direction focuses even more strongly on Mapal's core processes and key topics. As a result, the cutting tools company’s management board has grown from three to five members. Siegfried Wendel (62) and Jacek Kruszynski (58) joined President Dr Jochen Kress and current members Dr Ralf Herkenhoff and Dr Michael Fried as members of the board effective 1 October 2020.
After more than 40 years at Mapal and long membership of the extended management team, Siegfried Wendel has been appointed Chief Sales Officer (CSO). He is responsible for sales worldwide and for the individual sales channels. At the same time, Jacek Kruszynski, who has been a member of Mapal's extended management team since January 2020, took the role of Chief Technical Officer (CTO). He is responsible for product and market segment management as well as research and development.
Kress is convinced that he has laid the foundation for the company’s safe future: "The new structure supports us in fulfilling customer and market requirements in an even better way."
