Dr. Reinhard Pfendtner is the New COO of the Felss Group.
Dr. Reinhard Pfendtner assumed responsibility for Production, Purchasing, and Logistics as Chief Operations Officer of the Felss Group as of June 1 of this year. He is replacing our much appreciated colleague of many years, Rainer Schiessle, who is leaving the company by mutual consent to seek new challenges. Following his doctorate and four years of scientific employment at the University of Karlsruhe, Reinhard Pfendtner acquired more than 15 years of experience in various management positions, including as a project manager, internal auditor, and technical manager. Since 2015, as Works Manager and COO at Weber Hydraulics, he was responsible for the works in Brazil, the USA, Canada, and Europe. “What I find especially charming at Felss is the combination of mechanical engineer and supplier,” Pfendtner says with regard to his goals. “As a team player, I look forward to further developing Felss together with the new colleagues. Here, our customers and their needs are always the focus of my attention.” As the new COO at Felss, Pfendtner brings with him expertise in the automotive segment, well-conceived processes, a high degree of technical understanding, and business management capabilities. The Felss company group wishes Dr. Pfendtner much success in his new role and looks forward to working together.
