As of April 1, 2016, Jan Willem Jongert (51) will join the Executive Board of Wacker Neuson SE. In his new role as Chief Sales Officer (CSO), Mr. Jongert will be responsible for the global sales, service, logistics and marketing activities of the Wacker Neuson Group.

New delineation of responsibilities at Executive Board level

At the start of 2013, Cem Peksaglam took on the responsibilities of the outgoing CSO in addition to his own mandate as Chairman of the Executive Board (CEO). Under the leadership of Mr. Peksaglam, the Wacker Neuson Group has gone from strength to strength, reporting record revenues in recent years – and 2015 was no exception. The company has now completed realignment of Group strategy and is in the process of strengthening the Executive Board with this new addition.

Alongside his tasks as CEO, Peksaglam will remain responsible for strategy, mergers and acquisitions, human resource, legal, compliance, real estate, investor relations, corporate communication and sustainability. “We have made good progress with our international growth strategy in recent years and we are now looking to build on our performance here. Mr. Jongert is an experienced international sales expert and we are delighted to welcome him to the Executive Board,” explains Cem Peksaglam.

The Executive Board of Wacker Neuson SE will have four members following the addition of Mr. Jongert. Martin Lehner (member responsible for research and development, procurement, production and quality) and Günther Binder (member responsible for finance and IT) will retain their previous areas of responsibility.
