Philipp Zimmermann has assumed responsibility for global sales of web offset and digital printing presses at Koenig & Bauer Digital & Webfed, focussing on the high-performance digital press RotaJET, as well as consolidation of business relationships in commercial and newspaper printing. As mentioned, a key focus of his tasks as Vice President of Sales will be continued expansion of the market presence of the RotaJET in the packaging, décor, and book-printing segments. Prior experience and expertise in the field of special machine engineering will be key in this new role. Stefan Segger, previously Vice President Sales for the Digital & Webfed at Koenig & Bauer, will focus entirely on webfed digital printing, another important segment for the company.
Zimmermann worked for KraussMaffei Technologies, a leading manufacturer of machinery for the plastics industry, for the past 10 years. He joined the company as area sales manager for Asia and was appointed Product and Sales Manager for composite fibre and surface technologies for reaction process machinery in 2014. In 2018, he became head of the business unit that manufactures special machines for lightweight construction and high-end surface technologies, as well as process and system solutions for the manufacturing of industrial components using polyurethane and other reactive materials. For the past two years, Zimmermann was responsible for the global sales of reaction process machinery and achieved significant market growth in this segment during that time.
