January 7, 2019  By PrintAction Staff

In a continuing quest for transformation and growth for its flexible and label business, Bobst Group has announced several personnel changes to its executive team.

Erik Bothorel will leave the Group Executive Committee by end of 2018 and Stephan März, current Head of the Business Unit Services, will take on responsibility for Business Unit Web-fed as of January 1, 2019, while Julien Laran, current Head of the Supply Chain and Operations within the Business Unit Services, will be appointed Head of Business Unit Services as of January 1, 2019.

The Business Unit Web-fed, Bobst Group explains, faces “various challenges linked to its strategy implementation, market penetration and profitability improvement” and the Group is therefore implementing changes in this business unit.


“We warmly thank Erik Bothorel for the important contribution he brought to the Group since 2004, first heading Italy operations and since 2009 as Group Executive Committee Member. He devoted all these years to the business with passion, high professionalism and deep machinery business expertise,” according to a statement from the company.

Effective January 1, 2019, the Board of Directors of Bobst Group has appointed Laran, a French national, born in 1977, as Head of Business Unit Services and member of the Group Executive Committee. Laran has been with the Group since 2013 in various managerial positions within the Business Unit Services. He is currently in charge of Supply Chain and Operations.
