Oliver Zimmermann has been appointed Riedel Communications Director of Manufacturing, ‘to focus on Riedel’s supply chain and production processes to enable even greater efficiency and agility’.

Oliver ZimmermannA physicist, supply chain expert, and change management specialist with more than a decade of experience in manufacturing, most recently in data and telecommunications.

He earned a doctorate in physics from Ruhr University Bochum and since then has leveraged his knowledge of models and processes to analyse systems, derive meaningful measures, and refine internal structures to help manufacturing organisations become more efficient. A supply chain expert and change management specialist, Zimmermann applies state-of-the-art management models and optimisation tools, such as digitisation and artificial intelligence, to drive improvement.

Zimmermann most recently served as director of operations for Telegärtner Karl Gärtner, with responsibility for the supply chain of purchasing, logistics, warehousing, production, work scheduling and industrial engineering. He implemented agile and lean management methods, and digitised and optimised the production and supply chain with tools such as SAP S/4HANA. In earlier management roles with Poligrat and Steinert Elektromagnetbau, Zimmermann likewise led digitisation and process optimisation initiatives in sales, production, and administration.

‘Through a holistic end-to-end approach, I strive to build highly integrative, collaborative supply chain networks with the capacity to enhance both adaptability and learning capabilities,’ Zimmermann says. ‘As an organisation, Riedel has managed to complete major projects successfully despite constantly changing circumstances and inevitable challenges. This is a credit to the enormous motivation of individual Riedel employees, who are used to working in a very goal-orientated manner and with a high level of problem-solving competence. Going forward, we can build on these strengths by improving the interweaving of processes and people, as well as by gleaning more targeted lessons from each project we undertake. I look forward to the challenge.’
