After being postponed because of the pandemic, the world’s digital paper processing elite will once again gather at the Lucerne Exhibition Center in Switzerland for the Hunkeler Innovation Days, an important print industry event, from 27 February to 2 March 2023.
In its fourteenth edition, this internationally important industry meeting stands for many innovations and further developments in digital printing and finishing.
The Hunkeler Innovation Days have always been distinguished by an interdisciplinary concept. In a comparatively small space, all renowned manufacturers in the industry meet owners, managing directors, management, and experts. This makes this international industry meeting unique worldwide. Visitors gain insight into versatile scenarios with high practical relevance.
The last outing of the normally biennial Hunkeler Innovation days, held in 2019, attracted around 6,500 visitors from over 100 countries and hosted 100 exhibitors. The 2022 edition was postponed because of the pandemic.
Hunkeler is a family-owned Switzerland-headquartered company since 1922 and a market leader in digital production print finishing. It has more than 100 years of experience in the paper processing industry and over 40 years of digital print finishing experience.
Leadership change: Michel Hunkeler to hand over charge to Daniel Erni
On January 1, 2023, Michel Hunkeler, CEO of Hunkeler AG, will hand over his position as managing director to Daniel Erni, Global Sales manager and member of the Executive Board of Hunkeler AG.
As a delegate of the Board of Directors, Michel Hunkeler will continue to be involved in the strategic direction of the Hunkeler Group and work closely with the Executive Board
Daniel Erni has been with Hunkeler since 2016. As Chief Sales officer and member of the Executive Board, he has been a major force in the company’s ability to increase sales, earnings, and market share in recent years.
This success was made possible in part by his excellent rapport with Stefan and Michel Hunkeler, as well as his highly effective relationship with the management, employees, customers, and partners. Prior to joining Hunkeler AG, Daniel Erni held positions as managing director and sales manager in several other companies.
Daniel Erni will continue to report directly to Michel Hunkeler, who will in turn focus on the company’s strategic direction and support various stakeholders around the Hunkeler Group.
Stefan Hunkeler’s position as Chairman of the Board of Directors will be unchanged. The existing and proven executive management team will also remain in place.
