New President at Mesago
As of February 1, 2016, Dipl.-Ing. Martin Roschkowski (50) joins the Board of Management of Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH and its subsidiaries Mesago Messemanagement GmbH and Mesago PCIM GmbH. Continuing the proven success of dual leadership at the company, he will lead together with co-president Petra Haarburger. Martin Roschkowski takes over the reins from Johann Thoma, who will be taking up his new role at the Messe Frankfurt headquarters as of May 2016, after nine years at the head of Mesago.
In Martin Roschkowski, Mesago is gaining an experienced manager. For the last ten years, he has held the role of Managing Director at Xylem Water Solutions Deutschland GmbH. Before that, the qualified electrical engineer served as a head of department for a number of years at Weidmüller Interface, where he was responsible for strategic marketing worldwide. Given his technological background and many years of sales experience, he is the perfect choice for Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, an active player in the area of technology events.
“I would like to start by thanking my predecessor, Johann Thoma. Together with Petra Haarburger, he has really made his mark on Mesago in recent years and has helped make the company what it is today. I consciously opted for Mesago for the same reason. I also wanted to contribute to shaping the company and continuing its success, in close collaboration with our customers, partners, and employees,” explains Martin Roschkowski.
