Just in time for the 100th anniversary of the JOEST group (Duelmen) there is a change in ownership. Beginning of July Dr. Marcus Wirtz becomes Managing Partner in the JOEST group besides Dr. Hans Moormann. Dr. Hans Moormann remains chairman of the board who holds this position since 1999.
“JOEST has been on the road to success for years and now we are setting the course for the future at the shareholders level as well.” I am delighted that Dr. Marcus Wirtz, a long-term Managing Director of the JOEST family, is getting partner”, Dr. Hans Moormann comments on the new constellation.
Dr. Marcus Wirtz continues his career in the company: the 49-year-old started at JOEST in 2006. He established JOEST Inc. together with the german based in Chicago, USA and grew this company to a major market player in the United States. With his return to Germany, he took over the position of Vice President Sales of the JOEST group in Duelmen. Three years later, he was promoted to the position of Managing Director. He followed the footsteps of Dr. Christian Fuchs, who held this position for many years.
Now Dr. Marcus Wirtz is Managing Partner alongside of Dr. Hans Moormann – the next generation change at JOEST can come.
