Siegwerk, one of the world’s leading global providers of printing inks and coatings for packaging applications and labels, is expanding its existing management team. In a strategic move to reflect its global presence even stronger and adapt to the changing dynamics of the global ink and coatings industry, the company will establish a Group Executive Committee. Effective 1 January, 2024, the Group Executive Committee will develop, implement, and oversee key decisions and strategies for the company. In addition to the current members of the Board of Management – Dr. Nicolas Wiedmann, Chief Executive Officer; Dr. Jan Breitkopf, President EMEA; Ralf Hildenbrand, President Americas and Dr. Oliver Wittmann, Chief Financial Officer – Ashish Pradhan, President Asia, will also be part of the newly-formed committee.

With an even stronger Asian representation in the management team, Siegwerk will be able to effectively respond to the evolving needs of an ever-expanding international business. The inclusion of Pradhan in the Group Executive Committee underlines, once again, the significance of the Asian region in Siegwerk’s global strategy. With its immense growth potential, Asia plays an active role in shaping the company’s future together with the other two major regions, EMEA and the Americas. The new management structure will help Siegwerk to drive innovation strategies even more efficiently, manage products flexibly across locations and continue to pursue its strategic goal of being a leading provider of circular and digital packaging solutions.

The new Group Executive Committee will further provide continuity and stability while driving Siegwerk forward with the greatest sense of responsibility.

“Siegwerk will continue to be very well positioned for the future with its new management structure. Thanks to an impressive level of knowhow, experience, and dedication, we are ready to further expand our business and drive innovation in the packaging industry,” said Dr. Nicolas Wiedmann, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Siegwerk.
