Changing of the guard in management

mac - the trade fair experts

Economist Matthias König takes over the commercial and technical management of mac as of 1 April.

Why mac is a good fit for him:

A native of Stendal in the Altmark, König managed several concrete factories in the Thomas Concrete Group for many years from the Hamburg office. The 53-year-old is looking forward to the challenges involved in moving from Hamburg to Langenlonsheim and from the concrete industry to trade fair construction. "This special industry and the complex tasks really appeal to me," he said. "I want to be a part of mac's growth and contribute to further improvements in performance. Specifically, I plan to re-engineer the work processes to be more effective and efficient, particularly in the peak periods for trade fairs." That will benefit both employees and customers and will reinforce the positive image of mac in the market.  

Why he is a good fit for mac:

König has more than 20 years of experience as a managing director in a medium-sized company. He does not come from the trade fair industry, but many parallels apply nonetheless. For example, he has in-depth knowledge of the the national and international project business. He understands what counts when a project has a limited budget and tight deadlines and knows that the customer's wishes have top priority. In his previous positions he gained experience in production, logistics, human resources, IT, accounting and financial control and all facets of sales. Furthermore, he has marketing experience which will serve him well at a trade fair construction company like mac.
