ACG has appointed two senior executives in its Germany office. While Daniel Illmer joined as Design Head – Encapsulation, Afsaneh Nakhavoli has been appointed as Design Head – Tableting.
As Design Head – Encapsulation, Illmer will oversee product development, maintenance, improvements and redesign, and will report to Werner Bongers, CEO, SciTech, ACG.
He joins the ACG team from Robert Bosch Packaging Technology Gmbh, where he was responsible for mechanical design, development and engineering, among other areas.
Nakhavoli’s new role as Design Head – Tableting will include leading innovation and product development, with the same reporting lines. In the last seven years, as a project engineer at Fette Engineering GmbH, she led the development and construction of automatic capsule-filling machines.
Commenting on the appointments, Bongers said, “Design heads are pivotal to our business and their wealth of industry experience will help drive innovation and underpin the continued global growth of ACG. Their appointments follow the news celebrating our recent prestigious iF Design Award win. We continue to develop and evolve as a business – working closely with our partners to drive technology in the pharmaceutical industry.”
On being a part of ACG, Nakhavoli said, “ACG stands for innovation, invention and inclusiveness. They are one of the leaders in technology in the pharma industry. What made the move irresistible though, is the opportunity to develop high-class products with a diverse team of global experts.”
Adding to it, Illmer said, “This is an exciting time to join ACG, as the company advances both in Europe and globally. I am looking forward to further develop the ACG brand, and its new generation of pharma equipment.”
