Volker Bibelhausen takes on the role of Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Weidmüller has recruited a technology expert with excellent sector knowledge and international experience.

Volker Bibelhausen has held the position of the first CTO of the Weidmüller Group since 1 September 2018, and together with Jörg Timmermann (Speaker of the Executive Board and Chief Financial Officer) and José Carlos Álvarez Tobar (Chief Marketing and Sales Officer), forms the three-member Executive Board team. The Supervisory Board decided to create the new CTO position with the view of further embedding customer and technology expertise in the implementation of the corporate strategy at Executive Board level as well.

Elke Eckstein, former Chief Operating Officer, left the company at her own request on 31 August 2018. The Supervisory Board and Executive Board both regret the departure of Ms Eckstein and would like to thank her for her significant contribution towards Weidmüller’s success, in particular in the area of digital transformation. In his new position as CTO, the internationally-experienced technology and industry expert Volker Bibelhausen can now seamlessly continue on from her work in this same area – with a particular emphasis upon forward-looking product development. The 52-year old has more than 25 years of leadership experience in automation technology and electronics as well as the automotive supply industry. His previous role was that of Vice President of Sales Original Equipment at Robert Bosch Car Multimedia GmbH.
