Effective February 1, 2019, Martin Stillger will take over as Chairman of the thyssenkrupp Schulte trading organization. His predecessor Ilse Henne joined the Materials Services Executive Board at the beginning of the year as Chief Operating Officer.
The 55-year-old, who studied mechanical engineering, brings with him over ten years of management experience from thyssenkrupp Materials Services: Among other things, he has headed the materials distributor’s Eastern European subsidiaries since 2012. He has also been responsible for the business units in the Western Europe region and of Technical Services since 2018. He will continue to hold these positions. Before joining thyssenkrupp, Stillger worked for Barmag AG for 17 years, five of which as sales director and chief executive officer.
“With Martin Stillger, we are counting on an experienced and competent manager for thyssenkrupp Schulte. He knows the business very well and has many years of sales experience,” says Dr. Klaus Keysberg, Chairman of the Executive Board of thyssenkrupp Materials Services.
