The Board of Trustees of the Montan-Stiftung Saar trust has appointed Mr Jonathan Weber as Managing Director, Chief Operating Officer, of Stahl-Holding-Saar GmbH & Co KGaA and as a member of the Board of Management of Aktien-Gesellschaft der Dillinger Hüttenwerke and Saarstahl AG, effective 1 April 2021. He will assume the newly established cross-divisional Transformation function and will drive forward the implementation of the transformation. This carries with it the responsibility to continue developing the future oriented program of Saarland’s steel industry which ensures a result-oriented target portfolio that includes new business models as well as a competitive internal set-up, especially with regard to costs and processes.
Mr Weber, 40, has been Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer of the Electrical Steel business unit of thyssenkrupp’s Steel division since 2019. After completing his studies in business administration at the University of Mannheim, he began his professional career in the strategy and M&A department of Salzgitter AG. He moved in 2012 to the thyssenkrupp Group, where he held various management positions including several years as Head of Strategy for the Steel division.
Montan-Stiftung-Saar is the owner of Stahl-Holding-Saar GmbH & Co KGaA. Stahl-Holding-Saar, formerly Struktur-Holding-Stahl, was established in 2010 as an operational management holding company, which has since actively taken on tasks for the Saarland steel industry. This has enabled both companies to work more closely together beyond the previously existing cooperative ventures and to have a stronger presence in their markets. They are working in unison to grow, to become more flexible and to increase competitiveness in their respective markets.
