Manroland Goss Group CEO Alexander Wassermann is taking up a career outside the printing industry, the company announced. The move is part of a scheduled leadership change.

Franz Kriechbaum has been appointed new CEO by the shareholders L. Possehl and American Industrial Partners (AIP). Kriechbaum served as chief operating officer of the manroland Goss Group since 2017.

“Together with the manroland Goss management team, (Kriechbaum) will continue to drive the company’s established and successful strategy as a reliable, stable and highly customer-oriented solutions partner for all webfed offset printers,” said a company press release.

“Company, shareholders and employees are very thankful for the accomplishments of Alexander Wassermann,” said the release from the company, which has headquarters in Augsburg, Germany.

The move comes about a year after the merger of manroland web systems and Goss International. The newly formed company has completed its post-merger-integration phase, the company says.
