Change of management at ROVEMA


Duisburg/Fernwald, 13 August 2018. Thomas Becker, 54, CEO of ROVEMA since 2011, left the company for personal reasons and on the best of terms with the shareholders. 
Thomas Becker, who studied engineering and business administration, took over the reins of the company in 2011 together with other investors and has continuously developed it into one of the market leaders in modern packaging machines. Thanks to his high level of commitment, many international manufacturers of branded goods from the food sector trust in ROVEMA technology and make use of the corresponding services. Not least, he played a major role in the takeover of ROVEMA GmbH by the family equity company Haniel in October 2017. Haniel Chairman Stephan Gemkow: “The Haniel Management Board would like to thank Thomas Becker for his many years of successful commitment as Managing Director of ROVEMA. His courage in guiding the company out of a difficult phase and his far-sighted and innovative decision-making were decisive for the outstanding development that ensued”.

Peter Baumgartner, 64, will lead the company as CEO together with the former ROVEMA management team on an interim basis. As Chairman of the Supervisory Board , he has been acting in an advisory capacity for the company for some time. “We are delighted that Peter Baumgartner has immediately agreed to step in to fill the gap,” says Stephan Gemkow. “As a graduate engineer and with 30 years’ experience in industry and consulting, he will continue to manage the company with a large degree of continuity together with the management team. Nor, in a transitional phase such as this, can we imagine a better interim solution for the employees of ROVEMA”.
