German elevator giant Thyssenkrupp has appointed Volker Hellberg as the country chief executive officer of its industrial solutions business in Saudi Arabia.

Having joined the Börse Frankfurt-listed firm in 2015, Hellberg succeeds Thomas Dreiling, who has returned to Germany to head the Thyssenkrupp’s cement plants operating unit.

Dreiling's four-year tenure with Thyssenkrupp in Saudi Arabia saw him combining the German firm's cement, mining, chemicals, and services businesses into a single entity, called Thyssenkrupp Saudi Arabia Contracting.

Hellberg's career in the Middle East started as territory sales manager at Claudius Peters Technologies, according to his LinkedIn profile.

He previously served as vice president for services and business development at Thyssenkrupp Saudi Arabia's cement and mining unit, and has worked firms such as Humboldt Wedag as well.

In his new role, Hellberg will drive the growth of Thyssenkrupp’s plant engineering and construction business in the kingdom, with a special focus on the industrial service portfolio.
