Management

The bott managing directors have joint strategic and operational responsibility for the areas of development, production, sales, personnel and finance throughout all bott companies. Within the local companies, they are supported by additional members of the management.

After the bott family business was managed by its owners during the first 74 years of its company history, the shareholders transferred the management of the group of companies to the CEOs Dr. Reinhard Wollermann-Windgasse and Clive Woodward in 2004.
Jan Willem Jongert joined the Bott Group in January 2018 as Managing Director and Spokesman of the Management Board. In this position, he succeeds Dr. Wollermann-Windgasse, who is retiring from his position.
