Management changes at Pollmann International
Dynamic team for new automotive markets

With Herbert Auer as International Managing Director of the Pollmann Group and Christian Schreiberhuber as Managing Director of Finance and Controlling, two automotive experts will move into leadership positions at Pollmann International and strengthen the family-owned, global company.

The trend in the automotive industry is undergoing a reversal. Autonomous driving and alternative drive technologies bring new challenges to the industry and new opportunities for Pollmann. As company owners Markus and Robert Pollmann are happy to point out: "Our team has the technical creativity and process expertise that our customers need in a changing market. This will enable the new leadership to open up new opportunities."

Christian Schreiberhuber from Salzburg started his new position (CFO PINT) on June 1. He held international business management functions for many years in well-known companies such as BWT, VaTech and Gruber & Kaja.

Herbert Auer will become Managing Director of the Pollmann Group (CEO PINT) on October 1. Herbert Auer joined Pollmann Austria in 2003. He has an excellent track record in business development and was instrumental in setting up Pollmann China. He has been living in China with his family for nine years and, together with Ewald Miksche, successfully heads the Chinese location which has currently 430 employees.

Herbert Auer and Christian Schreiberhuber will be in charge of international strategic alignment, the organizational development of the Pollmann Corporate Group and coordination of all locations in Europe, Asia and the U.S.

Erwin Negeli was appointed second CEO of Pollmann Czech Republic together with Vaclav Kršík, effective May 1. He will now coordinate the Austria and Czech Republic locations. He sees interesting synergies for strengthening Pollmann's competitive position in Europe even further.

With Herbert Auer's return to Austria, Ewald Miksche will be the sole CEO of Pollmann China. Starting July 1, he will be assisted by Alexander Schüssler who will assume the function of Business Administration Manager.

Christian Gaugusch, Business Managing Director of Pollmann Austria GmbH, would like to pursue new professional challenges and will leave the company at the end of October. As the owners state: "We thank him for his many contributions, exemplary service and loyalty over the past 16 years."

In line with long-term planning, Tassilo Gruber will hand over his position as International Managing Director to Herbert Auer, but will continue to be available to owners Markus and Robert Pollmann in an advisory capacity.
