Change of Management in China

After 10 years in China and due to personal reasons, the General Manager of IMS Shanghai, Mr. Knut Sieling, will move back to Germany in autumn. The new managing director is Mr. Richard Rak, who has already started his work already. He will continue to extend IMS’ strategic positioning on the Chinese market. Starting from October, Mr. Sieling will work in the worldwide sales department in Germany. His focus will be the long products market.

Mr. Richard Rak works for IMS since 2002. As a software engineer, he has gathered considerable experience with all our products. Since 2008 he had worked in China as a commissioning engineer. Apart from our technology, he knows the country, the people and the culture very well. Following a short stop-over in Germany, he is being drawn to foreign countries again to face new challenges.

We thank our customers for the trust they placed in Mr. Sieling and kindly ask them to support Mr. Rak in the same way.
