Dr. Uli Weller, the long-standing commercial director of Liqui Moly, has been appointed joint managing director of the firm, alongside Günter Hiermaier.
He will become the second managing director of the group of companies at the start of 2023.
Liqui Moly says the appointment of a joint MD is a “logical step and a guarantee for lasting stability and security”.
This view is shared by Günter Hiermaier: “My responsibility is to lead our company into a secure future. For me, a second managing director means perfect strategic support,” he says.
Dr. Weller will be promoted to an additional managing director of the Liqui Moly Group, which also includes the Meguin GmbH & Co. KG Mineraloelwerke in Saarlouis, Germany as well numerous Liqui Moly subsidiaries abroad.
The company says he will continue functioning as the commercial director.
“I’m looking forward to helping shape the future of Liqui Moly from the top,” Dr. Weller says. “As long as I’ve been working for the company, I’ve been well aware of the fact that success is ultimately always a team effort. And we have an extraordinary team and I would like to be part of leading it.”
