Dagmar Schmidt has been announced by Flint Group as its new President, Flexographic. Schmidt joined Flint Group via BASF in 2003. Prior to her most recent CTO role, Schmidt led Flint Group’s Flexible Packaging business as General Manager and prior to this she held various commercial leadership roles (including Global Key Account Management), operational and supply chain roles at Flint Group.
This appointment will ensure strategic consistency as the organisation continues on its journey to fully commercialise their innovative and market leading offering to print and packaging converters worldwide. In her new role, Schmidt will succeed Aryan Moelker who will leave the business by the end of January 2020 to take a position as CEO of a German listed company.
Antoine Fady, CEO of Flint Group, said, ‘I would like to thank Moelker for his important contribution to our company over the last six years. He has re-evaluated the strategic positioning of Flexographic division and overseen the development of new products for Flint Group for HD and Thermal plates, the exciting new technology of Nano plate quality and the easy to use Catena-E system.’
Speaking about the appointment, Steve Dryden COO, Flint Group commented, ‘We are delighted with the appointment of Schmidt to president of the Flexographic division, where she will continue to drive her strong passion for innovation and building high performing teams. This appointment is yet another example of a key appointment being made from within the Flint Group business – which is always pleasing to see.
‘Schmidt is more than familiar with the business having worked closely with the division in her Transformation lead role and prior to that as General Manager for the Flexible Packaging Ink business. I am certain that she will provide a valuable contribution in the ongoing successful development of Flint Group.’
Schmidt said, ‘I am delighted to be taking on this new challenge in what is an exciting period for the organisation, and I now look forward to immersing fully in the business and working with the team to ensure that we deliver our strategy.’
