Hamburg, February 11, 2019 – Clear structures shown on the new homepage www.georg-nordmann.com

Irina Zschaler has been concentrating on the chairmanship of the board of the Georg Nordmann Holding Aktiengesellschaft (GNH) since January 2019 and has been managing the GNH and its affiliated companies in an operative matrix structure together with her colleague on the board, Marco Bröning. Whereas Marco Bröning is in charge of the Finance and Controlling portfolios, Irina Zschaler continues to be responsible for the Sales and Marketing portfolios.
The far-sighted objective of strengthening the synergies between the group divisions and the clear structure of the GNH is presented lucidly on the revamped website www.georg-nordmann.com.

Irina Zschaler explains the next strategic fields: “We are paying particular attention to finding innovative business models that are suitable for GNH but which may well come from complementary sectors. We are on the lookout for further strings to our bow that offer synergies and whose potentials we can exploit without any preconceived conclusions.” Marco Bröning goes on to add: “One of the most exciting challenges we face in the near future will be the ongoing digitization and the associated adaptation of communicative and technical options. The processes should be able to cater for a multi-dimensional world so that we can operate safely in the future.”

The GNH and its companies, Nordmann, Rassmann GmbH as well as ROWA GROUP Holding GmbH, together take up the challenges of a market that is becoming increasingly international and consolidated and offer long-term, innovative product and service solutions for their business partners in a wide variety of industries.
