"You have brought prestige to the company," said company founder and mentor Gerhard Sturm, recollecting the corporate group's positive developments of the past 25 years, during which Wagner established an international production network and integrated into the network today's subsidiaries, ebm-papst Landshut and ebm-papst St. Georgen. "Thomas Wagner gave a textbook carrier performance, and is the role model and an example for his successors in management", said Sturm.

Now 50 years old, Wagner began working for the Mulfingen-based world market leader of energy saving fans and motors in 1984 as Assistant to the Director of the Planning and Organisation Department. By Spring of the next year, Wagner had become Department Manager and shortly thereafter was named Chief Department Manager in the areas of planning, organisation and operations management. Thomas Wagner has been a member of the Managing Directors of the ebm-papst Group since September 2002.

"25 years of employment with ebm-papst and the climb from assistant to Managing Director of the ebm-papst Group define an exceptional career path," observed Hans-Jochen Beilke, Chairman of the Board of Managing Directors, on the occasion of the festive tribute. "Wagner gets to the bottom of things. His fellow Managing Directors hold him in high esteem and he is very much appreciated by the staff," said Beilke.

For his services, Wagner, who lives in Schwäbisch Hall, received the Honorary Certificate of the Heilbronn-Franken Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
