Wieland Electric sets the course for the future
The Bamberg-based company has developed into a global player and the growth course is set to continue.
Therefore, the global company, with its 14 subsidiaries and 1600 employees, is strengthened by a new corporate management. Since 9 August 2019, Dieter Gleisberg has been leading Wieland Electric through the transformation process towards the future as Managing Director together with Dr. Ulrich Schaarschmidt. Thus, Wieland Electric is sharpening//strengthen its corporate focus. Thanks to its international experience at REHAU AG and the arvato Group, a subsidiary of the family-run Bertelsmann Group, Gleisberg has the necessary know-how to drive forward the global orientation of its strategy. Over the past few years, Gleisberg has successfully demonstrated his corporate management skills in Germany and abroad.
The common goal of the Wieland dual leadership Gleisberg/Schaarschmidt is to consistently meet the requirements of the global markets for fast and flexible solutions. Andreas M. Wieland, Chairman of the Shareholders' Meeting, comments on the change and thanks Dr. Oliver Eitrich on behalf of the Shareholders' Meeting and Advisory Board for his many years of cooperation: "Dr. Eitrich has left his mark on Wieland over many years. We are very grateful to him for his work and wish him all the best for the future".
