MULTIVAC appoints two executives for the recently acquired Fritsch Group – Andreas Eyd and Frank Gabriel.
Andreas Eyd (pictured: left) will be responsible for the sales management of the company, while Frank Gabriel (pictured: right) will be responsible for its technical leadership. Together with the existing managers, the new management duo will direct and develop the FRITSCH Group as a stand-alone business.
Before he arrived at MULTIVAC, Andreas Eyd worked in various management functions, including CEO, within the printing industry and refrigeration sector. Since July 2017 he has occupied the position of vice president of sales and operations for Central Europe, Africa and the Middle East as well as for Australia and New Zealand. He will continue until further notice in this position in addition to taking up his new duties.
Frank Gabriel has been at MULTIVAC since September 2011, most recently as CEO of MULTIVAC’s Spanish production company. Prior to this, he was responsible for international production projects at the packaging machine manufacturer’s Group headquarters.
Frank Gabriel’s successor in Spain, Txus Baquero, takes up his new position on August 1 and, since he has been production manager at MULTIVAC Spain since 2011, he is already well-rooted in this branch of the company. He is the first Spanish CEO, whom MULTIVAC has appointed for its subsidiary in Spain.
Both Andreas Eyd and Frank Gabriel see great potential in the takeover of the FRITSCH Group. “We are convinced that, together with the experienced management team at FRITSCH, we can continue to expand the business and develop it sustainably,” they say.
