Syntegon has appointed Torsten Türling as new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who is succeeding Dr. Michael Grosse, who will leave the company on 31 October 2023, following three and a half years as CEO.
Torsten brings with him over 30 years of international management and sales expertise to the role, with extensive CEO experience at the helm of well-known and privately owned companies. Most recently, he served as CEO of Nilfisk, a supplier of cleaning equipment based in Denmark.
Previously, he was also CEO of Ideal Standard International where he was responsible for successful turnaround. He has held various management positions at Linde and as Managing Director of Linde Refrigeration. He holds a Master Business Administration from the University of Saarbrücken and a Master of Management from EM Lyon Business School in Lyon.
Dr. Michael Grosse has been CEO of Syntegon since 2020, and as such has been largely responsible for the company’s successful transformation into an internationally independent company following its spin-off from Bosch at the end of 2019.
“We thank Michael Grosse for his outstanding contribution to Syntegon and wish him all the best for the future. He has steered the company safely through the pandemic and the ongoing global supply chain crisis,” said Marc Strobel, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Syntegon. “Under his leadership, Syntegon has made excellent progress in recent years. For the next phase of Syntegon’s development we are delighted to welcome Torsten Türling, an internationally experienced manager with proven sales expertise. With his strong focus on innovation and expansion of sales structures, Torsten will contribute to the company’s further growth.”
“Syntegon has made impressive progress as an independent company since its spin-off from Bosch. I look forward to contributing my expertise to the company and working with the global team to realise the group’s growth potential. Syntegon’s ability to develop customer-specific solutions is unique and its innovative range of products and services already excites customers around the world,” added Torsten Türling, CEO of Syntegon Group.
“It has been a great pleasure and an honour to lead Syntegon on its journey to become an independent, leading, and global provider of innovative and sustainable processing and packaging solutions,” said Dr. Michael Grosse. “Now is the right time to pass on the baton. I wish Torsten great success and fulfilment in his new role. At the same time, I would like to thank all our employees for their trust and their unwavering commitment throughout my tenure.”
