A fresh view from the outside helps to ensure that we attach sufficient importance to the topic of innovation. We are well positioned in terms of processes, finances and products - but as an SME we must constantly question ourselves and focus on the future. We hope that Mr. Monti di Sopra will make a major contribution in this respect».
Fabrice Monti di Sopra is confident about his new commitment: «I was impressed by the openness in all discussions so far. For me it is a sign of a healthy corporate culture and thus the foundation for correct, jointly supported decisions. My passion for mechanical and plant engineering in the capital goods sector has been driving me for 22 years now. It is my concern to consider innovation in the strategic development of the company and to bring it successfully to the market. This also means to positively influence one's own cost structure through innovation in order to be able to compete on the market. I see innovation, together with a clearly defined strategy and processes that are lived out in practice, as a growth driver for companies, including the Müller Group. I am delighted to be able to help shape the future of the Müller companies.»
