Interview with Christoph Klenk

Krones is a team event

Otto Appel, Chief editor

Presidents, politicians, and the Pope are not the only ones who are measured on their first 100 days in office. Every person who is promoted or hired into management is closely watched by colleagues, staff, superiors, or the Supervisory Board. These days especially, establishing yourself in your new role quickly is critical.


So, how were Christoph Klenk’s first 100 days as CEO of Krones? After 20 years with the company, he certainly qualifies as “homegrown” talent. We spoke with him recently – about himself, Krones, the first 100 days in office, and the challenges on the market.
