Dr. Gunnar Stiesch will take over the Technology Department, previously led by CEO Dr. Uwe Lauber, and will join the board as the new chief technology officer, according to a company statement. 

“MAN Energy Solutions has a clear strategy for the future that focuses on large-scale solutions for climate protection in shipping and industry,” said Gunnar Kilian, chairman of the supervisory board of MAN Energy Solutions.

“I am therefore delighted to have Dr. Gunnar Stiesch join the Executive Board as an experienced developer and manager who has already successfully driven forward the employment of climate-friendly technologies in the company in the past.”

“Wayne Jones has played a key role in shaping the company in difficult times and has successfully further developed its market position,” said Kilian.

“MAN Energy Solutions is on the home stretch to a new peak in order intake in 2022,” concluded Kilian, expressing thanks to Jones and wishing him success in future endeavors.
