Dr. Klinkner studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Munich and subsequently received a doctorate from Dresden University of Technology. He then held various positions in logistics planning and plant control at Porsche. After moving to Gildemeister, he was deputy CEO responsible for production and logistics, before becoming CEO at Knorr-Bremse. Since 2012, he is managing partner of Institute for Management Excellence GmbH.
“With Raimund Klinkner, we have gained a supervisory board chairman whose comprehensive knowledge in the fields of logistics and production is certain to prove invaluable for the work of the board,” said Claus Bolza-Schünemann, president and CEO of Koenig & Bauer AG.
“I am very honored to have been elected to the position of supervisory board chairman. Over its more than 200-year history, Koenig & Bauer has continually set the standards for the print industry,” said Prof. Klinkner.
“Speaking on behalf of the management board and the whole workforce of Koenig & Bauer, I would like to thank Martin Hoyos for his very successful work as chairman of the supervisory board of Koenig & Bauer AG,” said Bolza-Schünemann. When Hoyos took up the post, the Koenig & Bauer Group was in the middle of a comprehensive restructuring program. His five-year term saw decisive changes implemented at all the company’s locations. At the same time, the oldest printing press manufacturer in the world has entered new markets with new products. The acquisitions of companies such as Iberica, Duran and All‑Print have enabled consistent expansion of the group portfolio, while the joint venture Koenig & Bauer Durst sets course for developments in digital print.
