  • Dr. Jochen Fabritius to continue leading MBCC Group as CEO
  • Hendrik Heising to take over the newly created role as COO
  • Dr. Hartwig Grevener to join MBCC Group as new CFO as of August 1, 2021

Mannheim, Germany, February 11, 2021 – Today, MBCC Group, one of the leading suppliers of construction chemicals and solutions worldwide, has announced that it will enlarge its senior management team by adding the position of Chief Operating Officer (COO) as of March 1, 2021. In the future, MBCC Group will be led by a senior management team comprising Dr. Jochen Fabritius, who was appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in October 2020, and who will continue to lead MBCC Group. The newly established role of COO will be taken over by Hendrik Heising who – up until now – has been working as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of MBCC Group.

Dr. Hartwig Grevener will succeed Hendrik Heising as CFO on August 1, 2021. He will join MBCC Group from Sonova, a global player in the MedTech industry listed on the Swiss stock exchange, where he holds the CFO role since 2012, most recently also overseeing IT and acquisitions. Before joining Sonova, he was CFO of Jet Aviation. From 2001 to 2006 he worked as CFO for the European operations of Gate Gourmet, one of the leading global airline catering firms. His previous professional experience includes positions at Hapag-Lloyd, a German logistics group, A.T. Kearney management consultants, and BMW. He holds a diploma in business administration and mechanical engineering from the TU University of Berlin (1991), Germany, as well as a Ph.D. in business administration from the University of St. Gallen (1994), Switzerland.

“With Dr. Hartwig Grevener we have found an outstanding CFO with a long track record of value creation who will support MBCC Group in its journey towards profitable growth. At the same time, ensuring Hendrik Heising’s continued outstanding support guarantees even more focus on functional excellence, which will also create significant value for our customers and the entire Group. I personally look forward to the collaboration with both Hartwig and Hendrik in the senior management team. Hartwig will start on August 1 and will transition into his role beforehand as much as permissible within his current obligations,” said Dr. Jochen Fabritius, CEO of MBCC Group
