Jiang Ye will take over the Market Relationship Management board at HAWE Hydraulik as CSO (Chief Sales Officer).
Since January 2021, he has been Regional Director for APAC. He will continue in this role and will now expand his area of responsibility to include worldwide regional sales. Robert Schullan, who has held the position of CSO since April 2018 and the position of CEO jointly on the Board of Management for HAWE since July 2019, will remain in charge as CEO until the end of 2023 and will then retire.
He will be succeeded as CEO (Spokesman of the Board) by Wolfgang Sochor. This early succession plan ensures a seamless transfer of responsibility in this position as well.
In the second half of 2023, Jiang Ye and Robert Schullan will ensure a careful and smooth transition of customer relationships to the new responsibility.
Jiang Ye: “I will continue Robert Schullan’s sales work in the global HAWE Group with a focus on ensuring growth through competence close to the customer. True to the HAWE motto: We want to make it easy for our customers to work with us – HAWE, a company easy to deal with.”
Jiang Ye came to Germany in 1985 to study, where he also made his first contacts with HAWE. In 1999, he started as Managing Director of HAWE International Trading in Shanghai and has since worked for the company in many international functions and projects.
