Commenting on his strategic appointment, Dr Melzer says: ‘‘Digitisation is driving the change of competence in our society faster than any industrial change before it. During my tenure, I would like to focus on technology development – in particular, the further development of decentralised, autonomous systems and artificial intelligence, which provide us with excellent tools for optimising industrial production processes in the future – and the qualification and further training of skilled workers.

‘‘I look forward to taking over the chair and would like to thank Mr Leukert for his successful work over the past two years.’’

Dr Melzer has been a Member of the Management Board of Festo AG & Co. KG since 1 October 2017. A mechanical engineering graduate, he now heads Festo’s Product and Technology Management department, which includes Digital Business and Corporate Research and Innovation.
