Gerhard Schubert appoints Johannes Schubert as Head of Sales

Johannes Schubert follows on from Martin Sauter, who has relinquished the position for health reasons – though he remains with the company

Packaging machine manufacturer Gerhard Schubert has announced an organisational change, with the appointment of Johannes Schubert as Head of Sales. He replaces Martin Sauter, who is relinquishing the position for health reasons. 

Johannes Schubert, who is currently Managing Director of Schubert Packaging Systems, will take on a dual role with immediate effect.

Marcel Kiessling, Managing Director of Gerhard Schubert GmbH, explains: “We are delighted that Johannes Schubert is taking over as Head of Sales at Gerhard Schubert and that Martin Sauter, who is relinquishing this position for health reasons, will remain with the company.”

Johannes Schubert, grandson of company founder Gerhard Schubert, has held many interesting positions despite his young age. 

He initially trained as an industrial mechanic at the Crailsheim headquarters before working as a Project Manager in Sales after his apprenticeship and taking on responsibility for several major international projects. 

A two-year overseas assignment at Schubert’s subsidiary in Charlotte, North Carolina, also contributed to his wide-ranging experience. Back in Germany, as Product Manager, he played a key role in the development of the successful Flowmodul for packaging products into flowpacks and ensured a smooth market launch. 

In mid-2021, Johannes Schubert joined Schubert Packaging Systems as Managing Director and has since also been responsible for Sales at Schubert-Turnkey and Schubert-Pharma. 

With immediate effect, he is taking on his new additional role of Head of Sales at Gerhard Schubert GmbH and will be appointed an authorised signatory in this function. 

Johannes Schubert comments: “As always, when I have completed a change of position within the Schubert Group, I look forward to my new responsibilities with enthusiasm. In my new role as Head of Sales, I will continue to consistently drive forward our position in the market. That being said, I have big shoes to fill. Martin Sauter has done an outstanding job.”
