After many years in management, Christina Thurner has been appointed as a member of the Board of Directors, with equal rights, alongside her brother Dr Claus-Peter Amberger. In her new position, she will also become responsible for the "Projects” and "IT” divisions as well as the company’s facilities in eastern and northern Germany. With this measure, the logistics service provider is taking into account the positive development and growth seen during recent years.
Christina Thurner has been an active member of the logistics service provider’s management team since 2011 and she has been overseeing the company’s Innovation, HR and Communications divisions and she also established the Lean and Quality Management division. She will also continue to serve as an advisor to both Loxxess Pharma and trans-o-flex.
By expanding its Board of Directors, the company is now taking into account its successful development in recent years. The stable course over the past few months and being awarded the internationally significant European Logistics Award at the end of 2020 also highlights this strategic step.
Christina Thurner will be working alongside her brother, D. Claus-Peter Amberger, as a member of the board and she will be heading the “IT” and “Projects” divisions as well as looking after the company’s facilities in eastern and northern Germany. Amberger commented on the expansion as follows: “My sister and I will continue to dynamically develop the company together in order to be able to meet future requirements flexibly and fulfill them in the best possible way. We are supported by a great management team and more than 2,600 dedicated employees, who continue to do an outstanding job during the Corona pandemic”.
“Despite the current tense pandemic situation, Loxxess has developed very well in recent years and has consistently expanded its capacities in various key sectors such as e-commerce or hazardous materials logistics”, said Christina Thurner. “This means that we are very well positioned together with our customers, partners and colleagues. I’m looking forward to my new responsibilities”.
In addition to her activities in the company, Christina Thurner will continue to be involved in the logistics community as a member of the board of the Federal Logistics Association and, as a supporter of the “Business makers” initiative, she will be working to promote a positive public image for logistics.
The Amberger and Thurner families are shareholders of Loxxess AG, Loxxess Pharma GmbH and are also co-shareholders of trans-o-flex GmbH, holding equal shares with the Schoeller family. They also participate in the relevant boards at Loxxess Pharma and trans-o-flex.
