Stefan Steenstrup appointed new Dormer Pramet President.
Stefan Steenstrup has been appointed the new President of global cutting tool manufacturer Dormer Pramet.
Stefan, previously the company’s Global Sales Director, takes over from Fabrizio Resmini, who retires as of 1 January 2017.
Having worked for the Sandvik Group for the last 20 years, Stefan has held various senior positions after initially joining Dormer as technical specialist. In 2007, he became managing director of Dormer Italy, before moving into the company’s global management team.
Stefan, who speaks six different languages, was previously director of Business Development at Dormer Pramet following the merger of Dormer and Pramet Tools in 2014, becoming Global Sales Director a year later.
Originally from Denmark, Stefan, aged 46, will continue to be based in Milan, Italy.
He said: “As President of Dormer Pramet my work will initially be focused on continuity; continuity of our business model of being ‘Simply Reliable,’ continuity in delivering on key projects and continuity in driving us to our goals.
“I am excited to start this new challenge and I look forward to working with our customers, partners and colleagues around the world to achieve our ambitious growth targets.”
Stefan’s appointment marks the end of more than 30 years association with the company for Fabrizio Resmini, who started his career as managing director of SKF and Dormer in Italy. He became managing director of Dormer Tools Italy, holding the role for several years, before being appointed President of Dormer Group in 2001.
Fabrizio led Dormer’s merger with indexable carbide tooling specialist Pramet three years ago, and has guided the development of the new company within the industry as Dormer Pramet President.
Stefan added: “Fabrizio's energy and contributions will be greatly missed. We wish him a happy and healthy retirement. Our success in recent years is a direct result of Fabrizio's leadership and he leaves us a strong company, ready to take on the future.”
