KAMAX appoints new Group Executive Board

KAMAX is reorganising its executive board: Dr. Reinhard Rupprecht will take over as CEO of the KAMAX Group on November 20. He was previously Regional CEO Europe and was responsible for the KAMAX entities with the highest number of employees and turnover. Christoph Görtz took over as CFO of the Group on October 16. Together, they will strategically drive forward all of the supplier's business areas to not only continue to guarantee strong competitiveness but also to enable sustainable growth.

As CEO, Dr. Reinhard Rupprecht brings decades of global experience from international corporations and SMEs. "My goal is to take the entire KAMAX Group to a new level technologically and financially in the next years," emphasises Rupprecht. "The focus is on increasing competitiveness through innovation to provide our customers with the best possible offer."

CFO Christoph Görtz will primarily continue to drive forward the financial strategy and the topics of digitalisation, governance, and sustainability. He also sees the most important goal as ensuring the critical success factors of stability, efficiency, and cost leadership. "I see the role of the CFO as a proactive shield for the company," he says. "The relationship between OEMs and suppliers is currently being renegotiated from scratch in the automotive industry, and there will be many losers and fewer winners. It's clear which side we want to be on." The business administration graduate has over 20 years of professional experience in the automotive industry.

The former CEO, Jörg Steins, has expanded the KAMAX Group through acquisitions, new products and production facilities over the past seven years and is leaving the company to pursue a new professional challenge.
