Amazon Top Executive recruited to Elanders / LGI
Starting from 2nd July 2018, Bernd Schwenger, currently working as Managing Director at Amazon Logistics in Germany, will take over as new Division Manager for Automotive and Electronics at Elanders’ subsidiary LGI Logistics Group International. CEO Andreas Bunz says, “We look forward to working together with a proven logistics expert like Bernd Schwenger who will be responsible for two big divisions.”
Trained as Business Manager in Transport and Logistics, Bernd Schwenger has many years of experience from previous senior management positions at HP and Amazon. “He has profound knowledge in end-to-end solutions in addition to vital skills in digitalization processes, which are becoming increasingly important to our industry,” Andreas Bunz states. “This is how we will proactively respond to market changes triggered by new technologies.” Schwenger adds, “I am looking forward to the new challenges as Division Manager at LGI. I am convinced by the strategy of LGI’s parent company Elanders to further invest in comprehensive logistics solutions.”
The so far Division Manager Automotive, Volker Englert (56), will become Director of Human Resources. With him, LGI will strengthen its strategic Human Resources Management. Andreas Bunz says, “With Volker Englert we put our trust in a powerful leader with operational expertise who will bring us forward in the competition for skilled labor and executives, and in talent management.” Englert has driven the Automotive Division successfully with new concepts and customers since 2013.
Matthias Moser (56), so far Division Manager Electronics, will take a sabbatical with LGI for personal reasons. “Matthias Moser has further developed the Division Electronics over the past years and laid the foundation for big projects, just as our new business with Panasonic, that will start in summer,” says Bunz.
