He will assume his new role as soon as the sale of the Metco division to Oerlikon is closed (sale agreement signed as announced on January 31, 2014). In the interim CEO Klaus Stahlmann will take over the responsibilities of the Pumps Equipment Division President.

César Montenegro, aged 61, a citizen of Venezuela and the US, has been with the company for more than three decades. He has vast experience and a successful track record in leading large operational units within Sulzer including the Pumps Business in North America.
