Published: Sunday, January 12, 2020

As of the beginning of 2020, Lothar Thoma has assumed responsibility for the Air & Sea division of the international transport and logistics company Gebrüder Weiss. The economics graduate is going to reinforce the Management Board around Wolfram Senger-Weiss (Chairman), Peter Kloiber and Jürgen Bauer. The relevant resolution was adopted by the Supervisory Board of Gebrüder Weiss in December 2019. As communicated by the company around mid-2019, his predecessor Heinz Senger-Weiss (45) had decided to resign from his executive function on the Management Board of Gebrüder Weiss with effect from the turn of the year.

Thoma (52) will have to perform a great variety of tasks within a global company: Gebrüder Weiss is present in 30 countries today. He started to work in the air and sea freight division of Gebrüder Weiss on September 1, 2019. Ever since all activities in this area have been handed over to him step by step.

Born in Baden-Württemberg, he has been working in the logistics industry for more than 20 years and has most recently been responsible, as CEO, for the overall business of an international logistics group. Before that, he has held various executive positions with other renowned international transport and logistics companies.
