Senvion strengthens management team: Christoph Seyfarth to join as new COO

(PresseBox) ( Hamburg, )
Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, will have a new COO as of February 2016. In his new role, Dr. Christoph Seyfarth will manage the Supply Chain, Global Blades, Global Nacelles, Operational Excellence and Order Fulfillment divisions and report directly to CEO Jürgen Geißinger.

Jürgen Geißinger, CEO of Senvion, said: "Christoph Seyfarth brings with him experience of the wind industry and is therefore familiar with the specifics of the sector. In addition, he has decades of experience in other sectors, including the automotive industry. I am convinced that Senvion is bringing in a COO who will actively support us on our further global expansion path. We are looking forward to the expert reinforcement Christoph Seyfarth will provide."

Seyfarth holds a doctorate in business administration from the University of Würzburg. Before his appointment at Senvion, he was a member of the Executive Committee of Nordex as COO Nacelle and Tower from 2015 and managed that company’s global purchasing on an interim basis before taking over the "Nacelle + Towers" centre. Christoph Seyfarth brings with him more than 20 years of managerial and professional experience in the purchasing departments of international manufacturers, with leadership roles held at Alvarez & Marsal, Magna International and Mercedes-Benz.

Christoph Seyfarth said: "I am very much looking forward to working with the experienced management team at Senvion. I am delighted to be given the opportunity to contribute my experience to expanding and developing the company further on its international growth path."

In 2015 Senvion was acquired by investment firms Centerbridge Partners and Arpwood Partners and has since strengthened its Product & Technology division, in particular by introducing a new low-wind turbine, installing the first turbine with a new electrical system and opening an additional Research & Development Center in India to support the Senvion TechCenter in Osterrönfeld. Moreover, purchasing activities at the headquarters in Hamburg have been boosted by the Senvion sourcing office in Shanghai, in operation since June 2015.
