Bernd Schwenger will assume leadership of LGI from 1st July
HERRENBERG. Bernd Schwenger will become Chairman of the Management Board of LGI Logistics Group International GmbH on 1st July. The 47-year-old will take over from Andreas Bunz, who led the company for 24 years. Find out more about what the new CEO intends to do with LGI and the logistics company’s strategic orientation in this edition.
Focus on digital end-to-end customer solutions
A change in the management was already announced at the end of 2018, after Bunz had announced he would leave for mid-2019. His successor, Schwenger, wants to prepare LGI perfectly for the digital transformation of the economy. “As a provider that manages 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 47-year-old. “To handle this, we need to focus on our value-adding and innovative solutions.”
Schwenger brings broad experience to LGI
The new CEO Schwenger has gained logistics experience in various management positions at HP and Amazon and has implemented international projects. The 47-year-old Managing Director Amazon Logistics moved to LGI in 2018 and took over the management of the Automotive and Electronics divisions.
Further changes in the upper management level
The positions that become vacant as a result of Schwenger’s move to the Board of Management are filled within LGI. Martina Weihing, who has been LGI’s manager for many years, will assume responsibility for Electronics. LGI’s largest division, Automotive, will in future be headed by Andreas Lorenz, previously Regional Manager at LGI.
Bunz retires after almost 25 years
Bunz managed the company from its foundation in 1995 as CEO with 160 employees and made it a large contract logistics company with around 5,000 employed persons in Europe. Together with Managing Director Eckhard Busch, also at the head of the company from the very beginning, the 60-year-old has accompanied all major milestones of the company, including several changes of shareholders.
