Andreas Denker has become a further CEO of NETZSCH Pumpen & Systeme GmbH in Waldkraiburg on April 1, 2023. Together with the current CEO Felix Kleinert, there will be a transition phase until mid-May, after which he will take over the management of the global Pumps & Systems Business Unit. At the same time, Andreas Denker will become a new member of the global management team (GMT) of the NETZSCH Group. NETZSCH Pumpen & Systeme GmbH is the strongest-selling and most profitable business unit of the globally active family-owned company. Felix Kleinert, CEO in Waldkraiburg since 1999, will retire on June 30, 2023, after 24 years with the company.

Andreas Denker has 20 years of management experience in internationally operating technology companies such as Airbus and Mannesmann. In his new role, Mr. Denker will further develop the strategy of the P&S business unit. The NETZSCH Group is convinced that the Pumps & Systems Business Unit will continue to grow profitably under the new CEO and that the successful development of the last two decades will continue.

Great thanks go to Mr. Felix Kleinert. After successful realignment and global expansion of the Pumps & Systems Business Unit, he built the company into a leading global player in the pump industry. After 24 years as CEO, he is handing over his responsibilities to his successor and moving into retirement.
