Martin Winterstein, CSO Gehring Group
Dipl.-Ing. Martin Winterstein (41) has joined the management board of Gehring Technologies Gmbh and assumes global sales responsibility for the Gehring Group as chief sales officer. Besides honing technology, the focus will be on developing the activities in the e-mobility sector and further strategic initiatives.
As CSO, Martin Winterstein will strategically develop the sales and marketing activities for honing solutions, as well as production technology for electric powertrains. Further priorities will be digitalisation and profound cooperation with the customer base. Dr. Sebastian Schöning, CEO at Gehring says: “Martin Winterstein knows the requirements and needs of the customers in our strategic markets and industries. With his experience, know-how and customer-oriented approach, he will significantly contribute to a positive development of our company and initiatives.”
Martin Winterstein brings along a market and technology experience of over 15 years in the machine tool business. He acted as managing director and in other executive functions in sales, business development, product management and marketing for international manufacturers of machine tools, automation and systems. In addition, he held leadership roles and ran projects in key markets such as China, the USA, India, Korea and Russia.
The Gehring Group, a leading honing technology company, has diversified and strengthened its business in the past years by developing technology for electric powertrain production and integrating the German-Italian copperING Group as experts in this business. The result is a combination of longstanding experience as systems provider for the automotive industry and profound technology expertise for conventional and electric powertrains. Gehring has thus positioned itself as partner for modern mobility, independent of the drive technology. Innovations and solutions from both areas were on display at the recent EMO exhibition in Hannover.
