Wolf-Gerd Dieffenbacher withdraws from DIEFFENBACHER Management Board

With Christian Dieffenbacher joining the Management Board of the family-run machine and plant manufacturer at the beginning of 2016, DIEFFENBACHER set a course for transferring management responsibility from the fourth to the fifth generation. Effective July 1, 2019, Wolf-Gerd Dieffenbacher resigned from the Management Board.

Wolf-Gerd Dieffenbacher was actively involved in the company for over 40 years and served as a member of the Management Board since 1985. In times of great change, he helped develop the pure press manufacturer into an internationally leading supplier of complete plants for the wood-based panels, composites and recycling industries. During this period, the company’s turnover increased from 36 million euros to over 400 million euros.

Wolf-Gerd Dieffenbacher will become part of the Board of Advisors and will remain associated with the company in various other capacities.

The DIEFFENBACHER Management Board consists of the three remaining members: Christian Dieffenbacher, Volker Kitzelmann and Lothar Fischer. In addition to his other responsibilities, Christian Dieffenbacher will become CEO and spokesman for the Management Board. The roles of CFO Volker Kitzelmann and CTO Lothar Fischer remain unchanged.
