Dr Hilmar Döring holds a doctorate in economics and has more than twenty years of international experience in the field of HR management in well-known family companies in the area of mechanical and plant engineering and the electrical industry.
“We have found a fantastic expert for personnel and organisational development in Dr Döring. The most important resources in any company are the people – Dr Döring will help us to ensure that we have the right people in the right place,” explains Andreas Lapp, Chairman of Lapp Holding AG.
One of Dr Hilmar Döring’s priorities is helping to ensure key positions in the Lapp Group can be filled internally. He stresses: “Our environment is changing at an ever-increasing pace, and topics such as digitalisation are a major challenge also for the Lapp Group. To successfully master these challenges and to implement our strategy in the long term, it is particularly important that employees accept the change and can make a positive contribution to shaping it. I want to help in the process.”

Mr Katic is an experienced professional and a perfect fit for our company,” explains Georg Stawowy.
