New Technical and Sales Director at MHT
With effect from January 1, 2015, the supervisory board of MHT Mold & Hotrunner Technology AG, Hochheim/Main, Germany, has appointed Christian Wagner to take over from Werner Plass in the position of Technical and Sales Director.
At the end of this year, Werner Plass, 63, a major figure in the creation of MHT, will leave to enjoy his well-earned retirement, but will continue to maintain close links with the company. Over the next few months, Christian Wagner, 42, will gradually take over all of his responsibilities, to ensure a seamless transition within MHT's management team. With his many years of experience in PET preform toolmaking and application technology, Christian Wagner is the ideal candidate to take over this role. Working closely with Christoph Kückels – who has served for many years as Finance Director – he will actively shape the company's future strategic orientation.
Until recently, Christian Wagner was running MHT's US subsidiary as CEO. This position has given him a wealth of experience in technical sales and will help him to make the most of MHT's growth potential in his new position.
Along with 10 partners, Werner Plass founded MHT, a specialist supplier of PET preform tools, in 1998 and has since then been instrumental in shaping its development. Today, the medium-sized company has five production and service sites in Germany, North and South America and Asia and supplies clients in more than 100 different countries.
