UK-born Raymond Engelbrecht has been appointed to the executive board of fan and drive specialist ebm-papst St Georgen. This follows the decision of Dirk Schallock to leave the company.
Mr Schallock had been in charge since 2009, during which time the company grew into a leading manufacturer of fans and drive systems, mainly for the automotive industry and the mechanical engineering sector.
Mr Engelbrecht, who was born in Windsor, has spent the last four years as division manager for the production facilities in the Black Forest. Since 2016, he has also been entrusted with the position of CFO and deputy CEO.
