New CEO at Hitachi Zosen Inova
Dear Sir, dear Madam
I am delighted to inform you that Franz-Josef Mengede is the new CEO of Hitachi Zosen Inova. With this appointment, we have secured the services of a manager with many years’ experience in engineering and an excellent network of contacts in Switzerland and abroad. Mr Mengede already worked with Von Roll Inova from 2005 to 2008 as COO and latterly as CEO. From 2008 until the beginning of 2013, he was in charge of the Global Business Unit “Power Generation” at ABB as Group Senior Vice President.
Franz-Josef Mengede will take up his position in Zurich on August 5, 2013. Seiji Shimoda, who has been acting as ad interim CEO since last November, will continue to support Hitachi Zosen Inova in his original role as CTO. The Executive Board of Hitachi Zosen Inova is completed by CFO Axel Greschitz, who has been performing this role for us since 2009.
As a global leader in energy from waste (EfW), Hitachi Zosen Inova delivers complete turnkey plants and system solutions for the thermal treatment of waste. We act as an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, providing solutions that are based on efficient and environmentally sound technology, are thoroughly tested, and can be flexibly adapted to user requirements.
We value our people, and draw our strength from their drive, their passion for engineering, consulting and project management, and their in-depth expertise and experience over the entire plant life cycle − right up to service and maintenance. Our innovative and reliable waste and flue gas treatment solutions have been part of some 500 reference projects delivered since 1933, current examples being the major projects at Vantaan Energia Oy in Finland, Ferrybridge Multifuel Energy and STV 4&5 in the UK, as well as Renergia Zentralschweiz in Switzerland.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the trust you have placed in us, and look forward to continuing to work with you successfully in the future.
Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Hitachi Zosen Inova
