The Mann+Hummel board has appointed Werner Lieberherr as the filter company’s new chief executive officer.
Lieberherr comes to Mann+Hummel from Rockwell Collins Inc where he has served as executive vice president and chief operating officer of Interior Systems since April 2017. He had previously been president and CEO of the publicly traded B/E Aerospace Inc, which Rockwell Collins acquired last year.
Earlier in his career, Lieberherr spent 16 years in management positions in the energy industry at ABB and Alstom Power Inc.
Lieberherr holds a degree in Technical Management and Operations Research from ETH Zurich and a Master of Business Administration from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management in Chicago.
“I very much look forward to my new position at Mann+Hummel. This traditional company has achieved impressive growth over the past ten years,” said Lieberherr. “I see tremendous potential, as filtration technologies will become increasingly important in the future. I also look forward to actively shaping the future success of the company with the management team and employees to offer innovative products to our customers.”
Thomas Fischer, chairman of the Mann+Hummel board of directors, commented: “Entrepreneurial thinking and experience in different technology markets paired with a pronounced customer focus and internationality were part of our specifications. Werner Lieberherr fulfills these requirements completely. I look forward to a trusting and successful cooperation and wish him every success.”
Lieberherr succeeds Alfred Weber who left Mann+Hummel earlier this year.
