Ralf Sammeck to Succeed Andreas Mössner as Head of Koenig & Bauer’s Sheetfed Division
Ralf Sammeck, a qualified printer and printing engineer, joined KBA’s Radebeul division on 1 September 2000 as sales director for digital printing systems following a seven-year stint at KBA competitor Heidelberg, where he rose to become head of the Düsseldorf operation, and four years as managing partner at a family enterprise in the packaging press business. Since Sammeck’s appointment in October 2002 as president and CEO of KBA North America in Williston (Vermont), which handles sales and service of KBA sheetfed presses in the USA and Canada, sales have more than doubled and the company has substantially increased its market share, expanding its historically strong position in the packaging printing sector and making further inroads in the commercial market. Ralf Sammeck will now bring his formidable sales and marketing skills to the global arena. Born in North Rhine-Westphalia, he is married and has two children.
