Dr. Heinz-Jürgen Prokop handed over the CEO position to Markus Clement on April 1, 2023.
“My mandate was to lead EMAG until a long-term and forward-looking appointment is found for this responsible position. Markus Clement and I made contact very early on and discussed future opportunities. A good working relationship quickly developed. With Markus Clement, EMAG is now fortunate to have a CEO who knows the company and its business very well, who has proven with his success in China that he can lead EMAG and whom the employees trust,” said Dr. Prokop about the personnel change.
Clement can look back on a successful career in the EMAG Group and has held many positions of responsibility in the group over the past 24 years. He started his career in the service division, where he worked for over six years. This was followed by positions in production management, engineering, and customizing including twelve years of experience at EMAG China. Most recently, Clement served as CEO of EMAG China.
"I am looking forward to this new challenge because EMAG is a great company and I can see many positive development opportunities in the interest of our customers. I am certain that with the new product and technology developments as well as the extremely committed employees, the EMAG Group has the right solutions on offer for the demands of the future in the field of productive precision manufacturing," Clement said.
