We are pleased to present: Florian BirkenmayerPress area, News
We have made an addition to our company management. Our Managing Director Karl-Heinz Overhamm, who has held the position for many years, will be managing the company together with Florian Birkenmayer effective immediately, thus preparing for a structured handover to the new Managing Director.
As a qualified industrial engineer with an MBA in International Business Management, Florian Birkenmayer has been deeply involved in the development and marketing of new products ever since the beginning of his career. In some of his previous professional positions, he managed development at Siemens and was the Managing Director at GEZE GmbH. He was also spokesperson for company management at the fischer corporate group.
Development is also a top priority for us. Karl-Heinz Overhamm welcomes the inventive spirit embodied by the new addition to the board: "Florian Birkenmayer complements the DIRAK family, bringing even more professional expertise in one of our strongest areas of competence. I am looking forward to working together and also to placing the company in competent hands soon."
Florian Birkenmayer also comes with relevant international experience: He managed the Development and Product Management Center for Siemens in China for three years and studied at various times in Singapore, Japan and the USA (Silicon Valley). Mr Birkenmayer also directed the Product Marketing, Product Management and Key Account Management departments for Siemens Building Technologies in Switzerland for 4.5 years. So our global network established by Karl-Heinz Overhamm will continue to be reinforced.
Our new Managing Director is delighted to be working internationally while at the same time remaining true to a mid-size enterprise with the new position: "Decision-making procedures are significantly shorter than in large corporations. Here you have an idea and if it's good, it will actually be implemented."
