WINTERSTEIGER recently appointed Harold Kostka as the CEO of WINTERSTEIGER Holding AG. Kostka has been CFO of the global mechanical and plant engineering firm since 2014 and he will continue in this function. He is now exercising the dual role as CEO and CFO.
Kostka takes over from Dr. Florestan von Boxberg, who had led the company as CEO for the last seven years. Boxberg himself will join the Supervisory Board of the WINTERSTEIGER Holding AG at the next annual general meeting.
Apart from this, Thomas Fürkötter has also joined the WINTERSTEIGER Management Board. He has taken up the newly created role of CTO with immediate effect. Fürkötter is ideally equipped to improve productivity at WINTERSTEIGER and continue to advance the drive towards digitalisation, with his over 20 years of experience in international supply chain projects at Karl Mayer, SAF-Holland, Magna Electronics, Schaeffler, and other well-respected firms.
Fürkötter’s expertise in integrating and industrialising corporate acquisitions will play a key role, as new CEO Kostka sees both new acquisitions and organic growth as significant aspects of WINTERSTEIGER’s future strategy. “Since 2019 we have made seven successful acquisitions that have allowed us to secure our position as the global market leader in niche segments.” The corporate group is targeting an annual turnover of 400 million euros by 2027.
