Lincotek Group has appointed Andrea Colombo as the company’s new CEO. Colombo will succeed Winfried Schaller, and assume his responsibilities on September 5th,  2022.

Winfried Schaller has played a vital role in a key transitional phase for Lincotek. Thanks to his strong direction, Lincotek is a global leader in its respective market segments and has more than doubled its size via acquisitions and organic growth, as well as expanded its global footprint – especially in the USA.

“The years have been full of challenges, but have also brought a lot of satisfaction. It certainly wasn’t always easy, but with passion, resilience, and a great team, it was a pleasure to realize our vision. The time has now come for me to face new challenges and I leave this group with the knowledge that this will be again a new beginning of the next phase in the growth of Lincotek. I am proud to have led the group through this transition and hand over this responsibility to Andrea with a sense of nostalgia and also of gratitude. I would like to thank my team, the owners, and our partners and customers for all the support during those years,” said Winfried Schaller.

Andrea Colombo brings more than 25 years of international experience in the Energy, Oil &  Gas, and FinTech industries. Colombo comes from NCR, where he was the Vice President of Global Product Operations. Prior to joining NCR, he covered the position of Vice President of the Energy Business Unit at Chromalloy, and earlier spent 14 years with General Electric Oil & Gas, managing businesses with increasing sizes of up to $3.5B annual turnover.

During his career, Colombo developed strong skills in project management, supply chain operations, and P&L management, as well as business development and M&A. He also developed critical leadership skills through leading large, diverse global organizations around the world.

“I am thrilled to join the Lincotek family and I am humbled to lead the organization into its next chapter,” said Colombo. “I am impressed by the technology Lincotek has developed over the last five decades, the level of quality achieved in servicing its customers around the globe, and I am proud to be part of a very ambitious  team that want to play a critical role in the future of the medical, energy and aviation industry.”

Colombo received his Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Universita’ di  Padova, in Italy, together with his post-graduation Master in Engineering for Nuclear Energy before entering the Electrical Engineering Ph.D. program.
