The Flender Group, part of Siemens AG Portfolio Companies, has a new CEO. As of 01.04.2020, Andreas Evertz has been appointed as additional Managing Director and will succeed retiring Stefan Tenbrock as CEO effective 01.06.2020.
For 36 years Stefan Tenbrock has been working for Flender. Since 2015, he headed the Flender group as CEO. During this time, he built up a standalone salesforce and then consistently led the company into legal and entrepreneurial independence from 01.10.2017 on. Since then Flender GmbH with its global entities has been operating as standalone subsidiary of Siemens AG. Thus, Tenbrock and his management team accomplished the business flexibility and customer proximity of a medium-sized company combined with the stability and process quality of a global enterprise with a clear focus on profitability and growth.
Prior to his appointment as Flender CEO, Tenbrock very successfully managed the product segment for wind gearboxes, that operates under the brand name Winergy. He was amongst the pioneers that recognized the potential of wind energy early on. During the 15 years in which he has headed Winergy, the wind segment became a global market leader for gearboxes in the rapidly expanding wind industry.
Andreas Evertz joined the company on 01.04.2020 as additional member of the management board of Flender GmbH. On 01.06.2020, he will take over the role as chairman of the board. Evertz worked for the former Flender Group in Bocholt and Tübingen until the end of 2007. Thereafter, he was CTO and later CEO of Walter AG, member of the board at Sandvik and most recently CEO at Schenck Process Group.
