Friedrichshafen, July 1, 2013. As announced in April, Dr Ulrich Dohle (59) today takes up his new duties as Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of Tognum AG. He succeeds Joachim Coers, who has left the company after nine years at his own request. In his new role, Dr Dohle will not only take on the typical duties of a CEO, such as corporate communication and strategy, but will also be responsible for R&D and quality management. In April, the Supervisory Board extended Dr Dohle's contract until 31 December 2015. He has been on the Executive Board of Tognum AG since 2009, previously holding the position of deputy CEO and CTO.
“We thank Joachim Coers for his excellent and long-standing contribution to Tognum and wish him well. Dr Ulrich Dohle will take over as CEO. This will ensure that continuity is maintained as we move to the next stage of integration and collaboration and position the combined business for future growth,” said John Paterson, Chairman of Tognum's Supervisory Board.
One priority of the Executive Board's work will be to expand operations worldwide. At the same time, cooperation with Rolls-Royce and Daimler is to be intensified. New in the product portfolio are medium-speed engines and system solutions from Norwegian subsidiary Bergen Engines, which today became a member of the Tognum Group. These serve to complement mtu engines and drive systems, mtu Onsite Energy distributed power generation systems, and injection systems from L’Orange.
