Printing machinery manufacturer Heidelberg has appointed Marcus Wassenberg as an ordinary member of the management board and chief financial officer of the company with effect from September 1, 2019 replacing Dirk Kaliebe.
It had been previously announced that Kaliebe would depart Heidelberg but will be available for an orderly transition.
Dr Siegfried Jaschinski, chairman of the supervisory board of Heidelberg, says Wassenberg brings with him many years of leadership competence in the financial sector.
“We are very pleased to have gained Marcus Wassenberg as a leader with many years of leadership competence in the financial sector,” Dr Jaschinski said.
“With his experience in the mechanical and plant engineering industry, he will align Heidelberg’s future financial framework with the requirements of digital transformation and further stabilize the balance sheet. In addition, he has successfully implemented change projects to increase efficiency, making him a well-suited new CFO for Heidelberg.”
Wassenberg was most recently chief financial officer at Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG in Friedrichshafen.
Before that, he was CFO at plant manufacturer Senvion SE.
He was born in 1966 in Grevenbroich in North Rhine-Westphalia and graduated in economics from the Ruhr University in Bochum in 1993. He began his professional career in the field of auditing; this was followed by positions as CFO of a market-leading PR agency and a German subsidiary of an American company. Thereafter, he took over the management of the medium-sized aviation group CIRRUS Group Holding.
