At the beginning of July 2022, Gregor Zowierucha took over the management of the system house Elbit Systems Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG. The graduate industrial engineer can already look back on a remarkable career, both in the military and in civilian life.
After completing his general staff course, Zowierucha first served as an officer in the Centre for Intelligence and, after his Afghanistan deployment, was assigned to responsible posts in the German Embassy in Washington D.C., the Operations Command and the Federal Ministry of Defence. Subsequently, he held various management positions in the German defence technology industry for many years, including at Rheinmetall and ESG in the Mission Aircraft and Unmanned Systems divisions.
“I am looking forward to my new task, which will be facilitated by the excellent work of the Elbit Systems Deutschland team over the past years. I will strive to preserve the values for which the company is known today,” Gregor Zowierucha announced.
He succeeds long-time managing director Thomas Nützel at the helm of Elbit Systems Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG, who is taking his well-deserved retirement at the same time. He hands over to his successor a well-positioned, innovative company that has extensive expertise in the areas of communications and data links, cyber security, electro-optical systems and solutions for the digital battlefield.
Thomas Nützel commented on his departure: “Elbit Systems Deutschland stands for innovation, competence, quality and reliability, both in terms of our products and in our relationship with customers. I am sure this will continue to be the case in the future. We are firmly at the side of the users and support them in their demanding tasks. We can all be very proud of what we have achieved.”
