As a result of strong growth in recent years, the Global Operations and Supply Chain Management (SCM) department at GEMÜ has steadily grown in importance and has been instrumental to the company's successful development. With a view to further growth, the company management has decided to incorporate the management of this department directly into the company management team.
As part of this reorganization, GEMÜ is also partly restructuring its management structure at the Divisional Manager and Senior Head of Department levels. In addition, the company management team is increasingly shifting its focus to strategic decisions for the entire GEMÜ Group and the management of international subsidiaries.
In Matthias Fick, the company management team is gaining a highly experienced production, logistics and supply chain management expert and long-time GEMÜ employee. Mr Fick started his career at GEMÜ back in 1994 as a logistics controller. Two years later, he was named Head of the Order Processing Centre, before being appointed as Head of Logistics/SCM in 2007. Ever since, Matthias Fick has played a decisive role in shaping global production, logistics and supply chain processes in various management projects. Most recently, as the Divisional Manager of Global Operations & SCM, Matthias Fick has been responsible for GEMÜ's global production, logistics and supply chain management.
"We're delighted to be joined by Mr Fick, a highly experienced and successful manager from within the company, in this position of responsibility. We're confident that, working together with him and his team, we'll be able to make strategic progress in this important department for GEMÜ," says Gert Müller, Managing Partner at the GEMÜ Group.
"I'm looking forward to the new role. I particularly relish the opportunity to work with my enthusiastic team to further advance the operational excellence strategy and to roll it out to all factories. I'm greatly appreciative of the trust placed in me and look forward to working together in a creative approach," says Matthias Fick, new Managing Director at GEMÜ Germany.
