Hellmann welcomes Dr. Thomas Lieb as Chair of the Supervisory Board
In December last year, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics became an SE & Co. KG. The change of legal form results in a dual management structure, consisting of a Management Board plus a newly formed control body, the Supervisory Board. The appointment of Dr. Thomas Lieb as Chairman of the seven-member Supervisory Board represents a notable coup for Hellmann Worldwide Logistics. He is a former Chief Executive Officer of the Schenker AG and former member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Bahn AG. Deputy Chairman, Dr. Alexander Winkels, brings a track record of more than 20 years in equity investment management, including a period as Managing Director of WestLB. The other senior figures serving on the Supervisory Body are: Harald Emberger (Head of Supply Chain, Beiersdorf AG), Klaus Hellmann (Shareholder of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics), Claus-Dietrich Lahrs (Chief Executive Officer of Bottega Veneta and former Chief Executive Officer of Hugo Boss AG), Karl Mohnsen (former Chief Executive Officer of TX Logistik AG) and the finance expert Michael Mölleken (former Board member of Festo AG).
“It gives us great pleasure to welcome Dr. Thomas Lieb as Chairman of the Supervisory Board. His many years of experience in the logistics business make him a valuable partner for Hellmann Worldwide Logistics. Together with the Supervisory Board, which also acts as an advisor to us, we will drive forward the successful restructuring of the Hellmann Group and build on our achievements of recent years,” announced Dr. Thomas Knecht, Chief Executive Officer of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics SE & Co. KG.
“The newly formed Supervisory Board is not just a formal control body for the SE & Co. KG, but also an important sparring partner for the Management Board. I am delighted that the senior figures on our Supervisory Board are going to contribute their expertise on future strategic development of our family-owned company,” explains Jost Hellmann, Chief Commercial Officer of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics SE & Co. KG.
