Holger Garbrecht, KBA North America CEO and President, on August 31 is stepping down from his current position in the United States and returning to Germany. KBA states a new CEO will be announced in the next several weeks.
After living in the U.S. for two years, Garbrecht states he is leaving KBA for family reasons. “For the past two years, I have had the privilege of leading one of the most dynamic printing press manufacturers in North America,” said Garbrecht. “It has been a rewarding period of my life to meet the KBA North American customers, see firsthand their great American spirit and entrepreneurship, and become an integral part of their business as our products have helped them to grow and prosper.”
Garbrecht recently completed KBA’s move into a new Dallas headquarters, leaving Vermont, which integrates the company’s previously separated web and sheetfed divisions. After years of executive experience at Heidelberg, Garbrecht joined KBA in October 2007 as President and CEO of the North American division.
