In this position, Breitkopf will be responsible for Siegwerk’s region with the highest sales, where the company has continued to grow organically and via acquisitions over the past years. The 41-year-old, who joined Siegwerk in 2012, brings both strategic expertise and operational experience to his new leadership role. As head of flexible packaging, Breitkopf has already overseen the biggest business unit within the EMEA region for the past year. And he contributed to the company‘s strategic development as head of corporate development from the day he joined Siegwerk five years ago.
Before that, he gained extensive experience as a business consultant. He graduated with a PhD in business administration.
Breitkopf succeeds Hugo Noordhoek Hegt, who left Siegwerk in July 2017 after 12 years on the board of management to pursue other career opportunities.
