Höxter, 1 July 2024 - The Arntz Optibelt Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Regina Arning as Managing Director. Regina Arning will take on her new role from 1 July 2024 and therefore will strengthen the Management Team of the Group. She previously worked at ContiTech in Hanover, where she was responsible for industrial drive elements for many years.

After starting her career in technical positions, Regina Arning gradually took on commercial management tasks. With her many years of experience and expertise in the industry, she will now gradually take on management responsibility for the Arntz Optibelt Group's global sales organisation.

Reinhold Mühlbeyer, the current Managing Director Sales, will retire from the Management Board at the end of November 2024. Upon his departure, Regina Arning will also take over as Chairman of the Management Board. Together with Konrad Ummen, who will remain responsible for the core area of production, the management of the Arntz Optibelt Group will thus ensure continuity and experience.

Regina Arning knows the products and customers in the industry very well thanks to her extensive professional experience. The advisory board and the shareholders of the Arntz Optibelt Group are convinced that the solution expertise for drive issues and the customer-orientation will be maintained and further expanded under the new management.
