Munich, September 23, 2020 - The Supervisory Board of Wacker Neuson SE has appointed Felix Bietenbeck as a new member to the Executive Board effective October 1, 2020. Mr. Bietenbeck will assume the newly created position of Chief Operations Officer (COO).

The aim is to align our organization even more closely with the needs of our customers, eliminate redundant structures, streamline reporting lines and give even stronger momentum to our innovative capabilities," concludes Lehner.
