Generation change at Mahr
After almost 30 years at Mahr, Stephan Gais, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and shareholder, will leave the management board at the end of June. He is thus ending his operational activities for the family-owned company. "Much has happened in three decades," summarized Stephan Gais when he said goodbye to the employees at a staff meeting in mid-June. "Together, we have achieved a lot: Mahr has an excellent name with customers all over the world and our portfolio is positioned for the future," said Stefan Gais.

Advisory board member and former CEO
A new phase of life awaits the great-great-grandson of company founder Carl Mahr, in which he expects to have "more time for family”. Nevertheless, he does not want to talk about retirement and assures with a smile: "I'm not going to sit back and grow orchids." Stephan Gais will remain a member of the advisory board of the family company, which was founded in 1861 and has its headquarters in Goettingen. He will thus continue to be the face of the Mahr family for the employees and for the management. In his new role, Stephan Gais wants to ensure that the values of the founding family continue to be lived.
Under new leadership
As the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Mahr Group, Manuel Hüsken will take over starting July. In the future, he will lead the company together with his management colleagues Udo Erath (COO) and Dr. Lutz Aschke (CFO/CIO) on an equal footing and act as spokesman for the management board. The three managers have the responsible task of implementing the newly developed strategy of the Mahr Group. "As a family-owned technology company, Mahr stands for trust and sustainability. We want to live up to this claim towards our employees at all locations and our customers worldwide and thereby lay the foundation for strong growth," says Manuel Hüsken.
