Managing Director Mühle-Glashütte GmbH
Thilo Mühle (53) has been Managing Director of Mühle-Glashütte GmbH since 2007. He is thus following the same path as his father Hans-Jürgen Mühle, who returned the family business to private ownership in 1994 and has successfully managed it ever since.
Thilo Mühle was born in 1968 in Zossen near Berlin. After completing his schooling, he trained as a toolmaker at Glashütter Uhrenbetriebe, to which his ancestors' company had been affiliated in 1980. In the years that followed, he gained professional experience as a toolmaker and as a sales representative for a watch wholesaler in Bad Kreuznach.
In preparation for his return to his father's company (2000), Thilo Mühle completed a two-year training course to become an office administrator. One of his first projects became the five-part anniversary edition Hommage to Robert Mühle, which turned out to be a great success for Mühle-Glashütte and a successful debut for him.
In 2004, he became second managing director alongside his father, and in 2007 he took over sole management of Mühle-Glashütte GmbH. Since then, Thilo Mühle has managed the company with prudence and a clear focus on its goals. He restructures the company, hires a highly motivated, experienced team, especially for sales, and thus also completes a successful generation change.
