Press release: Top-level addition: Adrian Keppler, is contributing his expertise to the H&Z Group with immediate effect.

H&Z is pleased to welcome a real high-calibre: Adrian Keppler, most recently Managing Director of EOS GmbH, the world's leading technology provider in industrial 3D printing, will bring his extensive expertise to the consulting business for H&Z clients as a Senior Adviser from april 1st, 2021.

"I am very excited to pass on the knowledge I have acquired. I want to be a real partner for entrepreneurs and companies," says Keppler. "This fits extremely well with the philosophy and values of H&Z." Keppler's topics are naturally digitalisation, digital manufacturing and 3D printing.

The expert knows from first-hand experience and countless practical projects how industrial 3D printing must be used along the entire value chain to help companies sustainably increase company value. Smarter product design, faster throughput times and increased flexibility in production, as well as faster ramp-up phases for new products - all this is made possible by digitization and the corresponding 3D printing technologies. Decisive factors for being able to operate successfully on the global market in the long term. Keppler also brings unique experience to the topic of company growth and development: When he joined EOS in 2010, sales were still just under 50 million euros - eight years later, when Keppler was already responsible for the business as CEO, they were more than 350 million. Inevitably, he had to learn a lot, says Keppler. Among other things, it includes how to develop a company from a product business to a solutions business, but also to focus on customer benefits and not just technology."Offering a good product is the basic requirement for companies, but it is no longer enough - today you have to refine products and offer customer-specific end-to-end solutions," Keppler said. The expert has also written a book chapter on this topic in a new practical compendium that will be published this fall.

As the two H&Z founders Rainer Hoffmann and Thomas Zachau, Keppler gained his initial experience as a consultant at Siemens Management Consulting. Afterwards, the engineering geology graduate joined EOS, where he held the positions of Managing Director for Strategy and Business Development, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) and then CEO in 2017.

"This important holistic view of companies and the experience of how to successfully grow an organization, together with the forged expertise and practical knowledge in the field of industrial 3D printing are unique knowledge treasures that only Adrian Keppler brings in this way. We and our customers are looking forward to the top-level expertise. Welcome to H&Z!",says Michael Santo, H&Z Managing Partner.
