Source: Gebrüder Weiss

Reinhold Graßer (63), long-time Regional Manager North and Director for Gebrüder Weiss, will enter into his well-earned retirement on December 31, 2017. He will be succeeded by Peter Schafleitner, who has been managing the Central Region at Gebrüder Weiss that includes Salzburg and Carinthia. This area has now been expanded to include the Czech Republic national organization and the Wels branch in Upper Austria.

Career track record: From apprentice to director
Graßer looks back on an exemplary 48-year career with Gebrüder Weiss. After completing his apprenticeship, the Linz native took on his first responsibilities within the logistics group. He played a key role in the establishment of groupage freight transports by truck within Austria, which had only been carried out by rail prior to that. In the 1980s, his field of activity continued to expand – from his position as Department Manager of Domestic Transport and Operating Manager to the management of various locations during the 1990s, through to Manager of Gebrüder Weiss' North Region starting in 2003. The North Region consisted of the Passau and Wels branches, as well as the Czech Republic national organization.
"Reinhold Graßer has done an excellent job for our company in all of his areas of responsibility and has fostered an important impetus for the future. I would like to thank Mr. Graßer for his strong commitment and I wish him all the best for the next stage of his life on behalf of Gebrüder Weiss," says
Wolfgang Niessner, CEO of Gebrüder Weiss. Significant milestones in Graßer's career include the expansion of the Gebrüder Weiss locations in the Czech Republic, the logistics terminal at Wels-Pernau and the successful acquisition of customers in the automotive and steel industries.
