Würzburg, Germany based Koenig & Bauer has announced personnel changes to its Digital & Webfed AG & Co. KG management group.

Philipp Zimmermann succeeds Christoph Müller as CEO of Digital & Webfed and will be responsible for the overall management of the segment, sales and product management.

At his side, Markus Dörr will assume responsibility for the financial aspects as CFO. He was previously responsible for the finances of the subsidiary Koenig & Bauer Industrial.

As CTO, Thomas Potzkai will continue to be responsible for technology and service.

With this step, the group is consistently aligning its governance structure with market requirements and strengthening the independence of the segments.

As part of the ‘Spotlight’ focus programme, Koenig & Bauer already announced the D&W 2.0 reorganization program at the beginning of May 2024 to address the ongoing loss-making situation in the Digital & Webfed segment.

The program focuses on organizational, structural, and operational measures to safeguard earnings opportunities in the growth markets of flexible packaging, digital printing and corrugated board. This program is headed by Andreas Pleßke, CEO of Koenig & Bauer.

With this program, the company said that the group is also reflecting the developments in the current product portfolio of the Digital & Webfed segment at management level.

In recent years, the focus has moved to inkjet, CI flexo and corrugated printing presses in addition to the extensive service business – also for the installed base of newspaper presses.

In his function as board member of Koenig & Bauer AG, Christoph Müller will increasingly focus on the network built up over decades to further advance technologies and partnerships in the field of digital printing, the company said.
