Jochen Mahrenholtz takes on
additional management responsibilities in MENSHEN GERMANY
Since 2019, the 53-year-old Mahrenholtz was focused on the technical re-engineering of the company. He will now take on further tasks from Ludger Braukmann, who will fully dedicate himself to the further expansion of the Menshen Group in Southeastern Europe from the new Menshen location in Serbia. “We appreciate Jochen’s positive way to look on the current crisis as challenge and his absolute will to drive sustainability and innovation in the plastics industry,” says Jörg Deutz, CEO of LUKAD Holding, the mother company of Menshen Group.
For Jochen Mahrenholtz times are too unsteady to settle down comfortably into his new role as one crisis follows the next. Most important to him: an agile and flexible approach to issues and the constant and open dialogue with employees, followed by the rule that no stone is left unturned to tackle the current challenges. “We are not only working on the continued success of our company, but also on the future of our planet. This drives me immensely, is extremely motivating and brings a lot of excitement to me and my whole team.”

He has already made changes to the composition and scope of duties of his senior management team: the areas of Innovation, Supply Chain, Human Resources and Sales will be further strengthened. With Dr. Klaus Skrodolies, Roman Schulte and Christiane Dimmel, new faces with plenty of experience have joined the team. Further changes in the organizational structure, but also in the portfolio and market orientation are planned.
“All of this follows the goal of saving energy, reducing CO2 and maximizing security of supply,” Mahrenholtz explains. “Some of it may cause surprises at first or even mean cuts but we are doing nothing less than helping to secure our common future.”
