Our Management

Katharina Linner

CEO | Managing Partner

My great joy is to recognize and develop potential. These opportunities can be found in so many things: the individual colleagues, the team, the technology, the product, the service. That's why my colleagues were the reason for me to take on the succession and to decide against the big wide world and for Wolnzach.

In the meantime, each of us three siblings has found his or her heart's discipline. Simultaneously, we've got ourselves a cool team with which we can make the best contribution to the company in the respective areas.

Managing Partner

Together with my siblings, I am the owner and managing partner of the company group. In the second generation, we run our company with heart and soul - I love what I do and stand behind it 100%.

Values such as honesty, commitment, trust and personal responsibility are very close to my heart. A good partnership works when people treat each other as equals and with the necessary respect. That's why it's very important to me that these values are also reflected the way I work in my company.

I have spent my entire career in the machining industry and can proudly claim: I am a machinist by passion!

All the impressions and various positions I have held so far have sharpened my view of the customer and ignited another passion: "delivery reliability". Fittingly, as CSO and COO, I am responsible for production and sales in our company group.
