The Supervisory Board of Heidelberg has appointed Marcus A Wassenberg as ordinary member of the management board and chief financial officer of Heidelberg with effect from 1 September 2019. Wassenberg succeeds Dirk Kaliebe, who will leave the company at his own request at the end of September and will be available for an orderly transition.

“We are very pleased to have gained Marcus Wassenberg as a leader with many years of leadership competence in the financial sector. With his experience in the mechanical and plant engineering industry, he will align Heidelberg’s future financial framework with the requirements of digital transformation and further stabilize the balance sheet. In addition, he has successfully implemented change projects to increase efficiency, making him a well-suited new chief financial officer for Heidelberg,” said Siegfried Jaschinski, chairman of the Supervisory Board of Heidelberg.

Wassenberg was most recently chief financial officer at Rolls-Royce in Friedrichshafen. Prior to that, he was chief financial officer at plant manufacturer Senvion SE. He was born in 1966 in Grevenbroich in North Rhine-Westphalia and graduated in economics from the Ruhr University in Bochum in 1993. He began his professional career in the field of auditing; this was followed by positions as chief financial officer of a market-leading PR agency and a German subsidiary of an American company. Thereafter, he took over the management of the medium-sized aviation group CIRRUS Group Holding.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
