Change of leadership at the top of the Mayer Group

In the Mayer Group, an era comes to an end after 28 years under the leadership of shareholder & managing director Klaus Mayer. On January 01, 2022, Klaus Mayer hands over the operational management of the Mayer Group to Mr. Manuel Linke.


 
After the untimely death of his father Georg Mayer on December 02, 1993, his son Klaus Mayer took over the responsibility and management of the Mayer company as shareholder & managing director at the age of 28. After 28 years at the head of today’s Mayer Group, Klaus Mayer hands over the management of the Mayer Group to Mr. Manuel Linke. Mr. Linke will lead the Mayer Group from January 01, 2022 as Chairman of the Management Board in the spirit of the shareholder Klaus Mayer and his family.

Mr. Linke joined Mayer Group on January 01, 2017 as project manager for marketing and sales projects. Since 2018, he has been managing director of the Mayer Planting Systems and Mayer Laser & Sheet Metal Technology divisions with their subsidiaries in Germany, Hungary, and China. During the past 4 years, he has been instrumental in expanding the international sales channels, digitizing sales processes, developing the product portfolio, expanding the manufacturing sites, and has positioned these divisions for the future and sustainability.

"Mr. Manuel Linke has more than proven himself in his previous functions at Mayer and has achieved great things. It was not an easy decision for me personally to pass on the management function to the next, younger generation - especially as I am only 56 years old. However, for strategic reasons and for the further development of the company, this step is exactly right at the present time," said Klaus Mayer, former shareholder & managing director

As Chairman of the Management Board, Mr. Linke will report directly to the Mayer Holding Supervisory Board. As of 01.01.2022, the existing Mayer Holding Advisory Board, which has been an advisory board to date, will become a determining supervisory board. The shareholder Klaus Mayer will take over the chairmanship of this supervisory board. Together with Josef Helmer (Helmer & Partner Heidenheim) and Patrick Wahren (SGP Schneider Geiwitz & Partner, Neu-Ulm), the Mayer Group has an experienced and competent team at its side.

The Mayer Group is broadly positioned and fit for the future. The generation mix within the workforce guarantees a healthy balance of change and stability. We want to hold on to old strengths and at the same time grow with new ideas.
