Changes in the management of Kalzip GmbH

Kalzip is reorganising its management and appointing Andrew Leach to the management board alongside Peter Brechtelsbauer from 1 December 2021.

As of 01 December 2021, Andrew Leach will lead the company as CEO. In this new role, he will be supported by his colleagues in the management team. At the same time, Mr. Frank Krauskopf will resign as Managing Director of Kalzip, so that in future Andrew Leach and Peter Brechtelsbauer will act jointly as the general management of Kalzip GmbH.

Andrew Leach has known both Kalzip and the industry for many years. He has held numerous management positions in sales and marketing at international level and is therefore ideally equipped to take on the responsibility of CEO. The further development of the international business and the strengthening of synergy effects within the Donges Group will also be a focus of his responsibilities.

Peter Brechtelsbauer and the management team in Koblenz are very pleased that Andrew Leach is taking on this responsible task and wish him all the best in his new role.
