“Markus Regner is a true all-rounder with an inside knowledge of the industry”, emphasised Jörg Pieper, CEO Romaco Group. “We’re delighted that he has agreed to join the Romaco management. He has an impressive biography and is thoroughly familiar with the complex executive functions of a mid-market company – a leader who is very much in touch with the grass roots.”
A graduate in Aerospace Engineering, Markus Regner began his career in the solar technology sector in the mid-nineties. He switched to the pharmaceutical packaging industry, which has remained his professional home to this day, at the turn of the millennium.
