Michael Jung

Michael has many years of experience in building operational business units in the industry as well as introducing new technologies. After completing his engineering studies in process technology, he gained initial experience with a medium-sized mechanical and plant engineering group before joining Nanogate, a spin-off of the Leibniz Institute for New Materials, in 2001. There, he accompanied the management until the end of 2019, in which he held responsibility for the entire Group, most recently with twelve production sites, as Chief Operating Officer (COO) after the IPO in 2006. Michael then expanded his expertise as Global Head of Operations in a medium-sized family-owned company in the plastics industry. As part of the management team, he brings this experience to bear and actively shapes the development of the company.

"I enjoy establishing new technologies as well as advancing Saarland."
