Portrait Natalie Mekelburger

Natalie Mekelburger

Chairwoman of the Board of Management

Has determined the strategic course of Coroplast as Chairwoman of the Board of Management and partner since 2006. Preserves the character and the structures of a family-managed enterprise with flat hierarchies and straightforward decision-making. Supports the entrepreneurial spirit within the company as guiding principle for the Coroplast management culture. Is committed to the continuous cultivation of human resources development. Promotes art, both within the company and in its environment, and sees Coroplast as a place of inspiration, not only as one of endeavour. Views digitisation as a management issue.

„We share the unbending ambition to always play a leading role in terms of quality, innovation and technology. Our vigorous customer orientation is underpinned by employees who are committed to the company in an exceptional way.“
Natalie Mekelburger (Chairwoman of the Board of Management)

Marcus Söhngen

Deputy Chairman of the Board of Management and Managing Director Technical Adhesive Tapes

Has been a managing director at Coroplast since 2001. As businessman and engineer, has played a crucial role in the rapid growth of the enterprise. Is always in search of new technical solutions and has the courage to do things differently to the rest of the sector. Believes in the positive impact of humour, enjoying work, the effectiveness of informal one-on-one talks and, above all, the motivating power of common success.

„We retain the ability to think ‘out of the box’, maintain our competitive spirit and share the enthusiasm for what we do. In the end, our ability to surprise customers with unexpected solutions is the solid basis for our enduring success.“
Marcus Söhngen (Deputy Chairman of the Board of Management and Managing Director Technical Adhesive Tapes)

Torben Kämmerer

Managing Director Cable Assemblies

Became the youngest member of the management team in 2011 after only five years at Coroplast. Is the tireless powerhouse driving the continual internationalisation of the Group. Sees a high level of automation and the strong impact of internationally experienced teams as the way to overtake the competition. Is convinced that innovative products and the courage to solve problems differently to competitors will always win through in the end.

„At Coroplast there is no need for a lot of red tape. We try to keep bureaucracy to an absolute minimum. We develop standards where necessary and implement management systems where they are beneficial – but not simply for their own sake.“
Torben Kämmerer (Managing Director Cable Assemblies)

Wolfram Berns

Managing Director Finance, Controlling, IT and Logistics

Moved directly from the University of Wuppertal to Coroplast and, as Managing Director, has been responsible for the administrative side of the company since 2011. Believes in lean structures and in-house further training as the best way of keeping up with the rapid growth in Coroplastֹ’s operations. Pursues the aim of comprehensively improving and standardising processes and making them increasingly efficient.

„Despite continual growth and internationalisation, the Coroplast DNA is alive and well. I am impressed again and again by the enthusiasm of Coroplast employees and the passionate way they tackle new tasks.“
