On July 1, 2024, Ralf Junker will hand over his position as president of BOMAG Group to Dr. Ingo Ettischer, who has been the managing director and chief operating officer at BOMAG since July 2023. 

With the handover to Dr. Ettischer, an experienced top manager will take over the leadership of the construction machinery manufacturer. Dr Ettischer looks back on many years of global experience from positions in operations management. Before joining BOMAG in 2023, he spent 21 years in management at Mercedes-Benz AG in the truck, van, and car divisions in various global executive and production roles. Prior to that, Dr Ettischer successfully led several strategy and operational excellence projects in different industries at a management consultancy for several years. 

"BOMAG is set to continue to grow internationally in size and portfolio. We are confident that Dr. Ingo Ettischer, with his experience, knowledge, and energy, will boost the company's growth and lead BOMAG successfully into the future," says Jean-Claude Fayat, owner and president of the FAYAT Group. 

"I am very excited to step into Ralf Junker's shoes and lead the BOMAG Group going forward," says Dr. Ingo Ettischer on his new role. "Together with a strong management team and a highly skilled workforce, we will steer BOMAG into a successful future. The close relationship with our customers, our innovative strength based on knowledge and commitment, and our enthusiasm for our machines and technologies will be decisive in this respect."

The outgoing President, Ralf Junker, looks back on a long career at BOMAG. Since 1988, he has held various positions in production at the Boppard site before taking over responsibility for production at BOMAG's worldwide production sites. In 2001, he became a member of the BOMAG Executive Board and was appointed managing director in 2009. He has been president of BOMAG since 2017. From 2017 to 2020, he was also responsible for global sales. After 36 years at BOMAG, Ralf Junker will retire but continue to advise the FAYAT Group. 

"Ralf Junker has significantly shaped the company over the years. Particularly noteworthy is his central role in the reorganization of BOMAG, especially during the integration process into the FAYAT Group. His leadership, commitment and extensive expertise have always contributed to putting BOMAG on a strong growth trajectory, with sales now exceeding one billion euros," says Jörg Unger, president of the FAYAT road equipment division.
