Since January 2022, Christian-Marius Metz and Tim Sterbak jointly steered the fortunes of UV specialist IST Metz. Now, with effect from 1 January 2023, Tim Sterbak takes over responsibility as the sole managing director of IST Metz. Christian-Marius Metz will in future focus on his work in the holding company.
Since November 2012, Christian-Marius Metz, grandson of company founder Gerhard Metz, has been part of the management team of the UV curing specialist and global market leader for UV and LED technology. He comments: “I have full confidence that Tim Sterbak will continue to lead the fortunes as he did last year already. During our close cooperation, he has proven that he not only acts with heart and mind, but also has the right sense of proportion to make the right decisions.”
Metz will now concentrate on his work in the holding company, but will continue to maintain close contact with his successor: “Of course, I will remain connected with the company, take part in management meetings and provide advice and support.”
Tim Sterbak stated: “We are a strong management team from which Christian-Marius Metz is leaving socially, but not operationally. Our business development shows that we are on the right track. I am looking forward to the future at IST Metz.
