To take full advantage of these opportunities, PMG will operate as a fully integrated global company. Michael Krehl, the new executive vice president, is emphasizing the importance of the integration process in realizing this goal: "The new PMG management is committed to fully integrate both companies. We have established a sales organization that will effectively facilitate serving customers across regions and product groups. We have also implemented internal best-practice-sharing and optimization processes as well as cultural exchange. Integration activities are already well underway and we will begin serving our customers as PMG immediately after December 1, 2005."
