Announcement Of Change In Chairmanship Of LGI Management

HERRENBERG. After almost 24 years at the helm of LGI Logistics Group International GmbH, Andreas Bunz, Chairman of the Management Board, announces his resignation in late summer 2019. “I have decided to hand over responsibility for LGI for personal reasons”, says Bunz. His successor will be Bernd Schwenger, who is currently responsible for the Automotive and Electronics divisions at LGI.

Focus on digital end-to-end customer solutions

“We as management are happy to have found in Bernd exactly the right personality for the position. He has extraordinary leadership qualities and the competence to lead LGI into the digital future”, explains Bunz. Schwenger wants to optimally prepare LGI for the digital transformation of the economy. “As a provider that controls the entire value chain, we have to use existing data and information in such a way that we can offer our customers added value”, says the 46-year-old.

Schwenger has broad and international experience in logistics

The prospective CEO looks at his new role with confidence and respect: “I am aware that I am not just taking over the position of CEO, but that I am following in the footsteps of LGIs ‘founder’”. Schwenger has gained logistics experience and implemented international projects in various management positions at HP and Amazon. In mid-2018, the 46-year-old moved to LGI as Managing Director Amazon Logistics and took over the management of the Automotive and Electronics divisions.

CEO must fit in with LGI culture

“It was important to us as management that the new CEO, in addition to his broad logistics experience, had his heart in the right place and fit in with the LGI culture”, says Bunz. In late summer 2019, the 60-year-old will hand over the chairmanship of the management to Schwenger. There is no exact deadline yet. “We will use the time until then for an ideal handover”, continues LGI’s CEO.

Bunz managed the company from the outset

Bunz has managed the company since it was founded: “I never dreamed that the first 160 employees would become over 5,000 employed persons almost 25 years later and that we would make over half a billion euros in sales. Together with Managing Director Eckhard Busch, also at the top of the company from the very beginning, the 60-year-old has decisively shaped the principles of LGI. During his time as CEO, Bunz accompanied all major milestones of the company, including several shareholder changes.
