Michael Thomsen has taken over as branch manager of Gebruder Weiss Salzburg, succeeding Peter Schafleitner, who will focus on his role as director of the Central Region.
The 35-year old, who was originally from Flensburg, started his career with Gebruder Weiss in 2006 after completing his studies at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences in Business Administration and Information Management with a focus on production and logistics.
He completed the company’s “Orange Future” training program before starting work in the areas of logistics solutions and sales in various positions.
As assistant to the manager of the Central Region, he was responsible for controlling and optimisation of processes and further develop the Salzburg location.
Thomsen says: “My goal is to further expand Gebrüder Weiss’ position on the market as a full-service logistics provider, and impress our customers with the highest quality standards.”
Schafleitner adds: “I am pleased that Michael Thomsen is taking over management of the Salzburg branch. He knows the location and, in addition to the necessary specialist expertise and social skills, he also brings the proper customer focus to continue on the path of success with our proven team.”
Schafleitner is taking over the Central Region, which consisted of the provinces of Salzburg and Carinthia, but is being expanded to include Upper Austria and the Czech Republic national organisation.
He says: “This is an exciting and interesting challenge to me. Upper Austria is known for its high economic performance and is an important central location for Gebrüder Weiss, as is the very successful Czech Republic national organisation.”
“In order to further develop the region positively, we intend to further expand our product portfolio in the future and strengthen our Service Excellence reputation.”
