VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.—Ingrid Jägering becomes the new Chief Financial Officer and Information Technology Officer at STIHL AG. She is the successor to Karl Angler, who at 66 will leave the company at the end of 2022 when his contract expires.

“With Ms. Jägering we have gained an excellent manager for our family company,” said chairman of the STIHL advisory and supervisory board, Dr. Nikolas Stihl, “She has proven her great financial expertise in various industries and intercultural contexts. In addition, she has extensive experience in the implementation of large transformation projects.”

“We would like to thank our previous Board Member for Finance and Information Technology for their extremely successful work at STIHL in around two decades. Our U.S. subsidiary STIHL Inc. in Virginia Beach was able to win Mr. Angler back in 2002, where he worked very successfully for 10 years as Vice President Finance in our largest foreign subsidiary. From Virginia Business Magazine, he was even voted ‘CFO of the Year’ in 2011,” says Dr. Stihl.

In May 2012, Angler took over the board department finance, controlling, information systems and service in the German head office. “With his work, Mr. Angler not only made a significant contribution to our good business development, but also ensured the very solid financial structure of the STIHL group of companies. As a board member, we owe him important strategic decisions and the far-sighted orientation of his department as well as our global IT landscape.”

Jägering will join STIHL on Jan. 1, 2023 at the latest; possibly even earlier in the course of 2022. The board department includes finance, controlling, treasury, IT and the management of corporate investments. At the recommendation of the STIHL Advisory Board, Jägering was unanimously appointed by the Supervisory Board to the Board of Management for 3 years.
