HSM – Generation Change in Sales

The document shredder manufacturer from South Germany, HSM GmbH + Co. KG,  said goodbye to two long-time employees in April who, between them, have over 100 years of professional experience and have now gone into well-earned retirement.

Jürgen Walker is a well-known face in the PBS branch. He played a significant part in HSM’s successful development over many years as Head of Sales Office Technology Europe. In a total of 52 years of professional experience, he was active in the branch for 40 years and spent 25 of those years at the document shredder expert HSM. In 2020, he passed the baton as Head of Sales Europe for Office Technology to his successor Michael Leiss and then focussed on supporting the specialist dealer sector in South Germany until his retirement.

Gerold Bommer, who was the reliable partner in South Germany and Austria over many years for the HSM specialist dealers, also went into retirement at the end of March. He spent almost 18 of his 52 working years at HSM.

Michael Leiss, HSM’s Head of Sales Office Technology Europe said: “I wish both colleagues all the best for their well-earned retirement and would like to thank them for their competent and enthusiastic work over many years.“

“With the retirement of these two employees, decades of experience at HSM also leave the company” added Michael Leiss. However, he considers that HSM is still in an excellent position to support the specialist dealers: Peter Düringer joined the HSM sales team on 1st February 2022 and has taken over as Area Sales Manager for South-East Germany and Austria. Mr Düringer is an insider in the PBS branch and has successfully supported customers for many years in the PBS Key Accounts and specialist dealers.

The continuation of the HSM GmbH + Co. KG success story (the company celebrated its 50th anniversary last year), is ensured with its broadly based expert team. The team includes highly experienced area managers, such as Harry Stein, who celebrates 25 years at HSM this year. This depth  of experience is complemented in the team by young sales managers who provide new impulses with their ideas. HSM believes that this optimum combination will ensure the continuation of the excellent specialist dealer support well into the future.
