Michel Hunkeler to head family firm

Michel Hunkeler succeeds his brother Stefan as head of the Swiss finishing company Hunkeler. The two brothers hold 100% of the share capital of the company. Meanwhile, their father, Franz Hunkeler, now 74, is retiring as Chairman of the Board of Directors. Ever since being established in 1922, Hunkeler AG has always been managed by members of the Hunkeler family, which has striven to maintain its commercial independence.

In addition, Hans Gut (49) assumes overall responsibility for marketing and sales, having successfully managed the Marketing division as a long-standing member of the Executive Board of Hunkeler. He will also take over the responsibility from Erich Hodel, Director sales America/Asia Pacific, who is transferring from 1 April to Hunkeler Systeme AG.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
