Neugart expands management
Holger Obergföll appointed new Managing Director (COO) Supply Chain
The gearbox specialist Neugart GmbH, headquartered in Kippenheim in southern Baden-Württemberg, has expanded its management team: Holger Obergföll has become the new Managing Director (COO) Supply Chain as of May 1, 2019. In this newly created function, he is responsible for the management of all internal and external supply chains.
As a business graduate and Master of Management with a focus on corporate strategy, Holger Obergföll has many years of experience in drive technology, machine control and lean management. His focus is on supply chain processes in warehousing and inventory, the optimization of production processes with Water Spider as well as the control of international downstream material flows within the EU and worldwide.
The strengthening of the supply chain by its own COO was part of Neugart's strategic realignment: The manufacturer of planetary gearboxes is currently responding to current market demands with a comprehensive package of hardware, tools, supply chain and services. In an increasingly challenging economic environment, speed and efficiency are the most important factors when it comes to realizing functioning transmission-motor combinations. Each individual phase of the process chain presents specific requirements - and demands appropriate solutions: from planning and configuration through production and delivery, to service during operation.
With the new appointment, the management of Neugart GmbH now consists of Bernd Neugart and Thomas Herr (both Managing Partners) as well as Matthias Herr (COO Business Development), Bernd Cihlar (COO Technology), Andreas Beinroth (COO Finance & Administration) and Holger Obergföll (COO Supply Chain).
Holger Obergföll (46) is married and in his spare time he enjoys being a pilot and honorary flight instructor.
