Change to Wacker Neuson SE Executive Board: Wilfried Trepels to take over CFO position

Starting on January 1, 2017, Wilfried Trepels will take on his new role of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and member of the Executive Board at Wacker Neuson SE. Mr. Trepels takes over the position from Mr. Günther C. Binder, who will be stepping down from the Executive Board.

Mr. Binder has been employed by the company since 1999 in a variety of roles. He initially worked for the Neuson Group, which was later merged into the Wacker Neuson Group. In 2007, he took on the role of CFO at Wacker Neuson SE in Munich and held global responsibility for finance, auditing and IT. Among other tasks, Mr. Binder saw the Group through its IPO in 2007.

By mutual agreement with the Wacker Neuson SE Supervisory Board, Mr. Binder has decided not to extend his current contract, which expires at the end of 2016. Both the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Binder for his many years of dedicated service and his support in developing the Wacker Neuson Group and wish him all the best for his future endeavors.

Wilfried Trepels (52) will be taking over the position of CFO at Wacker Neuson. As of January 1, 2017, he will be responsible for finance, auditing and IT for the Group. Previously, Mr. Trepels spent over 11 years as CFO at another SDAX-listed concern: SAF-HOLLAND Group. Headquartered in Luxembourg, this group is a leading manufacturer of chassis-related systems and components primarily for trailers but also for trucks and buses. Mr. Trepels has also held the positions of Managing Director at Dürr Systems GmbH and Schenck Process GmbH (then both subsidiaries of Dürr AG) and Director of Finance at Dürkopp Adler AG. Mr. Trepels holds a degree in business administration, having studied economics, energy systems and process engineering at Aachen University (Germany).
