Artlife expands management team

Manfred Pütz strengthens the management of Artlife

The two managing partners Stephan Haida and Andreas Bedel are setting the course for the future.

“As part of our future strategy, we have been looking for reinforcement in the company’s management for some time. With Manfred Pütz, former Managing Director of Schnaitt GmbH from Bergheim, we have now been able to successfully complete the search. Manfred Pütz has done an excellent job not only during his time as Managing Director at Schnaitt (since 2018), but also with his previous employers (including Severich & Partner) and, in addition to a high degree of expertise, has created a great reputation and a broad network,” says Stephan Haida.

“I didn’t take the decision to leave Schnaitt lightly. Together with our colleagues and those responsible at RSBG SE, which owns Schnaitt GmbH, we have done a great job over the past five years and can be proud of what we have achieved. But Artlife has also earned a very good reputation in the market as an owner-managed company in over 30 years and has experienced enormous development, especially in the past ten years. The offer to further develop Artlife as managing director in the future was too attractive for me to refuse. We have a common vision of where the path should lead in the next few years. From the very beginning, our discussions were characterized by great trust and mutual appreciation. The great creative possibilities, the short decision-making processes and the professional exchange within the team were further factors in my decision. I am therefore immensely looking forward to the tasks ahead and, above all, to the fact that I can take more care of customers and employees,” adds Manfred Pütz.

“Manfred Pütz’s appointment is a sign, especially for our customers and employees, that they can continue to rely on Artlife in the future and that we want to continue to develop even after 30 years. Manfred Pütz is empathetic in dealing with customers and employees and, in addition to his diverse experience, brings new impulses and ideas and is passionate about the industry and our daily work. To put it bluntly: he wants to continue the success story of Artlife and we and the whole team will support him in the best possible way,” concludes Andreas Bedel.
