By edited by Kyle Brown

She comes to the job with experience in the implementation of large transformation projects.

Ingrid Jagering was named as the new chief financial officer and information technology officer at Stihl AG, Waiblingen, Germany. She is the successor to Karl Angler, who at 66 will leave the company at the end of 2022 when his contract expires.

“She has proven her great financial expertise in various industries and intercultural contexts. In addition, she has extensive experience in the implementation of large transformation projects,” says Nikolas Stihl, chairman of the Stihl advisory and supervisory board.

“We would like to thank our previous board member for finance and information technology for their extremely successful work at Stihl in around two decades,” he says. “Our U.S. subsidiary Stihl Inc. in Virginia Beach was able to win Mr. Angler back in 2002, where he worked very successfully for 10 years as vice president finance in our largest foreign subsidiary.”

Angler took over the board department finance in May 2012, controlling, information systems and service in the German head office.

Jagering will join Stihl by the beginning of 2023 at the latest; possibly even earlier in the course of 2022. The board department includes finance, controlling, treasury, IT and the management of corporate investments. At the recommendation of the Stihl Advisory Board, Ingrid Jagering was unanimously appointed by the supervisory board to the Board of Management for 3 years.

She began her career in 1986 at Siemens AG in Bocholt with an apprenticeship as an industrial clerk. Until April 2012 she worked for the German group and several of its subsidiaries and sold parts of the company in various positions in Germany and abroad. Most recently she held the position of managing director and chief financial officer of the wind power division at Siemens Wind Power A/S in Denmark. She then worked for 4 years as managing director and chief financial officer of various business units at Man Diesel & Turbo SE in Augsburg and Oberhausen, before becoming chief financial officer in April 2016, member of the management and labor director at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors GmbH in Regensburg. Jagering has been chief financial officer and labor director at the listed Leoni AG since August 2019.
