From 1 May 2022, there will be changes to the executive committee of the wood-based material manufacturer. After more than 20 years in the Group Management, Walter Schiegl will move to the Supervisory Board. Hannes Mitterweissacher, who has also been with the Egger Group for more than 25 years, will follow him. In the future, the Group Management will be composed of four persons: Frank Bölling will be responsible for the logistics area. Egger thus responds to the potentials and developments in the area of internal and external logistics. Together with Thomas Leissing and Ulrich Bühler, Hannes Mitterweissacher and Frank Bölling will thus form the new Group Management team of the Egger Group.

After more than 20 years in the Group Management and more than 40 years of service at Egger, Walter Schiegl, responsible for technical/production and purchasing, will move from the Group Management to the Supervisory Board of the Group.

“Walter Schiegl has been part of our company for more than 40 years and has played a significant role in the development of the Egger Group,” said Fritz and Michael Egger, owners of Egger. “We are therefore very pleased that Walter Schiegl will join us in the Supervisory Board from 1 Sep 2022.”

On 1 May 2022, Hannes Mitterweissacher will move from his current position as the division director of technical/production of Egger Decorative Products Central to the Group Management, where he will be responsible for the technical/production and purchasing area, taking up Schiegl’s position. He has been with Egger for more than 25 years.

“If you are willing to learn and experience new things every day, Egger will open many doors for you,” emphasised Schiegl with regards to the decision for his successor.

The future position of Frank Bölling as Group Management Logistics will be newly created as of 1 May 2022. Until now, Thomas Leissing was responsible for this area, alongside finance and administration. In the future, he will focus on these two areas and will continue to perform the function of spokesman for the Group Management.

Frank Bölling has been with the Egger Group since 2019 and is currently working as division director of Logistics Egger Decorative Products East. Previously, Bölling has worked in various industrial sectors in senior positions in logistics and supply chain management. Egger is responding to the potentials and developments in the logistics area by creating this separate role in the Group Management.

“The transformation processes in internal and external logistics are profound, especially in the areas of digitalisation, automation and process optimisation. We want to use the potential of these developments. That is why we are strengthening the Group Management with Frank Bölling as logistics expert,” said Leissing.
