Nicolas Wiedmann has taken over as Siegwerk’s new CEO. Mr Wiedmann, who joined the company on 1 January, has undergone a three-month transition period alongside his predecessor Herbert Forker.

Mr Wiedmann plans to maintain a global and ‘well-suited’ network and wants to strengthen Siegwerk’s customer-focused approach through flexible and innovative processes as well as new digital services. Additionally, he will prioritise the company’s circular economy ambitions.

‘From the very first moment I got to know Siegwerk, I was impressed how motivated, innovation-friendly and forward-looking the company and its employees are,’ said the new CEO. ‘The track record of Siegwerk over the last years is remarkable, while always remaining true to itself. I would like to continue this course for growth and discover new opportunities – for Siegwerk and for its customers.

‘The Circular Economy is a major transformational force affecting every industry. Siegwerk is well-positioned to respond to this by providing solutions that will help customers eliminate waste and the continual use of the world’s valuable resources.’
