With effect from September 1, 2023, Jens Ennen has been appointed Chairman of the Executive Board (Chief Executive Officer) of Montanhydraulik GmbH, in the management team that has now been expanded to three persons.
After the appointment of the long-time sales manager and authorized signatory Thomas Mittag as Chief Sales Officer of Montanhydraulik GmbH in July, the appointment of Mr. Ennen as Chief Executive Officer is already the second personnel change within the management this year.
After more than 10 years in charge, Dr. Ralf Becker is taking his well-deserved retirement and passing the baton to his successor in the course of his planned age-related retirement. With his open and strategic management style, Dr. Becker has left a lasting mark on Montanhydraulik and has contributed his share to the company’s now 70-year success story. During this successful period, Dr. Becker has become a true « Montaner » who has always identified with the entire Montanhydraulik Group.
Together with Josef Mertens, the long-standing Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and Thomas Mittag, Mr. Ennen will steer the company’s fortunes with immediate effect and guide Montanhydraulik through the future challenges.
In his role as CEO, Mr. Ennen will be responsible for the operational business of the entire Montanhydraulik Group on a national and international level. In addition to excellent technical knowledge, the graduate mechanical engineer also brings more than 30 years of experience in leading positions in the crane and construction machinery sector and enjoys recognition in the industry. In the recent past, Mr. Ennen has led the European business of a renowned mobile crane manufacturer as Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Through his involvement with various major crane manufacturers and thus as an important customer of Montanhydraulik, Mr. Ennen will be able to draw on his extensive wealth of experience in the industry in his new role. In addition, Mr. Ennen has in-depth knowledge of the Montanhydraulik Group’s product range due to his previous activities in the design and development area.
