Management changes in MAN Sales Regions CIS and Eastern Europe
CEOs of Sales Regions CIS and Eastern Europe exchange positions in the course of job rotation.
With effect from November 1, 2012 Lars Himmer (43) will take over as CEO of MAN's Sales Region Eastern Europe. At the same time, the previous CEO of Region Eastern Europe, Jörg Mommertz (54), will move to take over management of Region CIS.
Lars Himmer had been responsible for MAN's Sales Region CIS since 2010. Under his management, MAN expanded its position on the Russian market and in 2011, for the second year in succession, was No. 1 amongst the European commercial vehicle importers for the segments trucks over 6 tonnes and touring coaches.
Jörg Mommertz began his career at MAN in 1991 as Service Manager and has held several management positions in Belgium, Sweden and Denmark. In 2007 he became the CEO of Region Eastern Europe, where for the past five years he has consistently expanded the network. MAN has now been holding its own as market leader in Poland for eight years.
"We are happy with job rotation at this management level and are thus very pleased to see the exchange between Messrs Himmer and Mommertz. Both managers have many years' experience in the commercial vehicles sector and have made major contributions to MAN's success in the Eastern Europe and CIS regions," said Dr Frank Hiller, Director of Marketing, Sales & Services at MAN Truck & Bus AG.
