“With Mr. Eulitz, we have won a very experienced strategist with significant international and industrial expertise for the CEO position at Knorr-Bremse AG,” says Prof. Dr. Klaus Mangold, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Knorr-Bremse AG. “As member of the managing board of Linde AG, he has decisively shaped the development of the company over the last five years. In addition, he has significantly expanded the business internationally through foresight, strong leadership and a team spirit. I am convinced that, together with the existing Executive Board team at Knorr-Bremse, Mr. Eulitz will lead the company with strategic foresight through the dynamic market environment.”
“I look forward to help shape the future of Knorr-Bremse. The company is very successful and enjoys an exceptional reputation,” says Bernd Eulitz. “The company’s IPO one year ago was very successful, and the company still managed to maintain its core essence as a family business. This combination of capital-market orientation and entrepreneurial identity is very attractive and holds great potential for the company’s future development.”
