Michael Thomsen moves to the top of Gebrüder Weiss Salzburg

Michael Thomsen (35) is the new Branch Manager of Gebrüder Weiss Salzburg. He succeeds Peter Schafleitner, who will now focus on his role as Director of the Central Region at Gebrüder Weiss.

Michael Thomsen started his career with Gebrüder Weiss in 2006, immediately after completing his studies at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences (Business Administration and Information Management with a focus on production and logistics). Originally from Flensburg, he completed the company’s “Orange Future” training program before starting work in the areas of logistics solutions and sales in various positions. He also managed various customer projects.

As the Assistant to the Manager of the Central Region, starting in 2013, he was responsible for controlling and optimisation processes, and further developed the Salzburg location. His goal is to further expand Gebrüder Weiss’ position on the market as a full-service logistics provider, and impress the customers with the highest quality standards.

“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,” says Peter Schafleitner.

At the same time as the transfer of the branch management, Peter Schafleitner’s area of responsibility will expand when he becomes the Regional Director, effective September 1, 2017. The Central Region, which until now has consisted of the provinces of Salzburg and Carinthia, will be expanded to include Upper Austria and the Czech Republic national organization. In order to further develop the region positively, GW intend to further expand their product portfolio in the future and strengthen the Service Excellence reputation.
