Prinoth Group, Granby, Quebec, has made changes to its board and senior management.
Werner Amort has been appointed to the company’s supervisory board after 16 years as president of Prinoth Group. He succeeds Michael Seeber as chairman of the Prinoth Advisory Board.
Klaus Tonhäuser has been named president of Prinoth Group, succeeding Amort. Tonhäuser made a name for himself as director of Rosenbauer, a manufacturer of fire engines, and later as CEO of Poloplast, a manufacturer of pipe systems.
“I am very happy to be a member of the Prinoth team and to be able to lead this highly regarded company,” said Tonhäuser. “Together with my colleagues, we will further shape the growth trajectory and winning path of Prinoth and take the company into the future.”
Alessandro Ferrari has been named CEO for the Tracked Vehicles and Vegetation Management divisions. He has been a member of the Prinoth Group’s board of directors since 2018 and has positions in purchasing, operations, and sales over the last nine years. Ferrari is an active member of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, has been serving on the ICUEE (now the Utility Expo) management committee since 2019, and in the Canada Leadership Group since its creation in 2020.
Anton Seeber, president of the HTI Group, Prinoth’s parent company, said: “Werner Amort has, in the last 30 years, made an important contribution to the growth of our group.” Seeber then said he is sure that Tonhäuser and his management team will continue Prinoth’s successful path of innovation and diversification.
