The Syntegon Group, a globally leading provider of processing and packaging technology, appoints Torsten Türling as the new chief executive officer. He succeeds Dr. Michael Grosse, who will leave the company by mutual agreement on 31 October 2023, following three and a half successful years as CEO. For the next phase of the company’s development, Syntegon is strengthening its Executive Board with an experienced manager who will continue to drive the company’s growth and innovation and will significantly reinforce its sales activities.
With Torsten Türling, Syntegon wins a growth-oriented strategist with a strong focus on implementation. He has over 30 years of international management and sales expertise, with extensive CEO experience at the helm of well-known listed and privately owned companies. Most recently, he served as CEO of Nilfisk, a leading global supplier of professional cleaning equipment based in Denmark and listed on the stock exchange. During his tenure, he initiated the strategic repositioning of the company and achieved significant progress in growth and sustainability.
Previously, he was CEO of Ideal Standard International, where he was responsible for a successful turnaround. He further held various management positions at Linde AG and, as Managing Director of Linde Refrigeration, led its successful integration into Carrier Corporation following the spin-off. He holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Saarbrücken and a Master of Management from EM Lyon Business School in Lyon.
Dr. Michael Grosse has been CEO of Syntegon since 2020, and as such has been largely responsible for the company’s successful transformation into an internationally independent company following its spin-off from Bosch at the end of 2019.
“We thank Michael Grosse for his outstanding contribution to Syntegon and wish him all the best for the future. He has steered the company safely through the pandemic and the ongoing global supply chain crisis. Under his leadership, Syntegon has made excellent progress in recent years. For the next phase of Syntegon’s development, we are delighted to welcome Torsten Türling, an internationally experienced manager with proven sales expertise. With his strong focus on innovation and expansion of sales structures, Torsten will contribute to the company’s further growth,” says Marc Strobel, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Syntegon.
“Syntegon has made impressive progress as an independent company since its spin-off from Bosch. I look forward to contributing my expertise to the company and working with the global team to realize the group’s growth potential. Syntegon’s ability to develop customer-specific solutions is unique and its innovative range of products and services already excites customers around the world,” says Torsten Türling.
“It has been a great pleasure and an honor to lead Syntegon on its journey to become an independent, leading, and global provider of innovative and sustainable processing and packaging solutions,” says Dr. Michael Grosse. “Now is the right time to pass on the baton. I wish Torsten great success and fulfillment in his new role. At the same time, I would like to thank all our employees for their trust and their unwavering commitment throughout my tenure.”
