Jochen Lütkemeyer to leave elero at the end of the year
elero GmbH in Beuren will be seeing a change in its senior management at the beginning of 2017. The current managing partner Jochen Lütkemeyer is leaving the company at the end of the year. His successor in the elero management as of 1 January 2017 is Enzo Viola.
Jochen Lütkemeyer has been at the reins of elero for more than five years now. He moved to the Beuren-based company in September 2011 from FIBRO GmbH – at the same time as Italy’s Nice Group acquired 80 per cent of the shares in elero for 25.8 million euros. “Jochen Lütkemeyer has performed outstanding work as the managing director of elero,” says Nice managing director Roberto Griffa. “In what have been difficult times he has consolidated the company, enhanced the product quality and optimised the production flows. Lütkemeyer has successfully managed innovation processes, developing elero into a premium brand for automation solutions in the field of blinds and sun protection within the Nice Group.”
Jochen Lütkemeyer believes he has fulfilled his mandate at elero. “I am no longer the right person for the next development phase in less turbulent times,” said the elero managing director. The change at the head of the company will ensure new momentum and it has been possible to acquire Enzo Viola, a native of Baden-Baden, to succeed Jochen Lütkemeyer. The 45-year-old graduate economic engineer was most recently a member of the management of the Ulm-based manufacturer Magirus and is taking up his position at elero GmbH as of 1 January. “Enzo Viola has the qualities that are needed now and ideally suits the requirements profile for further development,” was how Jochen Lütkemeyer praised his successor.
elero ranks among the world’s largest manufacturers of drives and controls. With innovative, high-quality technology the company has been ensuring movement in buildings and industry for 50 years now. In the continuous development of its products and services elero is also inspired by its customers, offering them a convincing service and local support.
