Siegwerk appoints new board member

Effective from September 1, 2017, Dr Jan Breitkopf will join the board of global packaging ink manufacturer, Siegwerk, to oversee the packaging business of the European, Middle East and African (EMEA) region.

In this position, Dr Jan Breitkopf will be responsible for Siegwerk’s highest sales region, which relies on a highly qualified team and has grown over the past years via acquisition.

As head of flexible packaging, Breitkopf has already overseen one of the biggest business units within the EMEA region.

Before that, he gained extensive experience as a business consultant and graduated and earned a PhD in business administration.

Dr Jan Breitkopf succeeds Hugo Noordhoek Hegt, who left Siegwerk in July 2017 to pursue other career opportunities after 12 successful years on the board.
