Marcus A. Wassenberg, CFO and labour director of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg), is expected to leave the company latest on 1 April 2023 and join the board of another industrial company. 

The transfer will take place by the best of mutual consent. In the period until his actual departure, Wassenberg will work with the Supervisory Board and the Chief Executive Officer to ensure an orderly transition of his duties and responsibilities into new hands. The Supervisory Board plans to fill the position quickly.

“Over the past three years, Marcus Wassenberg has done effective work both in restructuring the company and in driving forward the transformation. His imminent departure is also an expression of the milestones achieved, the financial successes achieved, and the regained future viability of Heidelberg. We thank him for his important contributions,” says Martin Sonnenschein, chairman of the Supervisory Board of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG.

“In Marcus Wassenberg, we are losing a committed innovator and I am losing a very valued Board colleague. Despite the unexpected challenges of the pandemic and the current uncertain geopolitical situation, he and his colleagues have restored the company’s robust economic performance. We will now continue unwaveringly with the strategic development of our portfolio and business model innovation. This is what our Supervisory Board, the management team, and I stand for together,” emphasizes the chairman of the Management Board, Ludwin Monz. “The future of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG is spread across many strong shoulders.“

“The task now is to further strengthen the core business and at the same time drive forward the development of new business areas based on the company’s extensive competencies, for example in electromobility, automation, and sensor technology. Under the leadership of Ludwin Monz, the company is excellently equipped for this permanent innovation task,” says Marcus A Wassenberg.

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.
