IMA Schelling is arranging the succession in the management and thus ensuring a stable continuation of the owner-managed company: Stefan Gritsch will, in the future, work in the holding company LEGRO Group GmbH, and Maximilian Lehner will take over his area of responsibility as CFO.

Stefan Gritsch has been operationally active in the company as a managing partner for 21 years and will in the future concentrate on strategic tasks in the holding company. From 2022, he will be responsible for the investment management of the Vorarlberg-based LEGRO Group GmbH. As the top management holding company, it holds significant stakes in various international industrial companies, including IMA Schelling Group GmbH. Gritsch's task in the future will be the acquisition and sale of further holdings as well as the strategic management of the subsidiaries. "I couldn't ask for a better successor than Maximilian Lehner and I am sure that he will continue to lead the company towards the future with focus and commitment," confirms outgoing CFO Stefan Gritsch.

Maximilian Lehner joined the company in 2015 after studying in London and initially worked at Schelling in the finance department, then later supported the then IMA Managing Director Bernhard Berger as an assistant in Luebbecke, Germany, and headed the organizational development department. In 2018, Lehner moved to the sales department and has been global sales director for the entire group since 2019. "I am looking forward to the new tasks as CFO and wish Stefan Gritsch, who will remain with us as a strong partner in the holding company, all the best," says Maximilian Lehner.
