Bernhard Heinrich leaves the Nagel-Group. Frank Böschemeier and Björn Schniederkötter take over in the interim

Bernhard Heinrich, long-standing managing director and CEO of the Nagel-Group, will leave the group by mutual consent of the partners presumably at the end of April 2017. The long-standing finance director (CFO) Frank Böschemeier and the managing director of freight forwarding (COO) Björn Schniederkötter, will be the joint spokesmen until a new CEO has been appointed.

In the early 80s Bernhard Heinrich joined the company as the first trainee at the location in Bremen. After several years of professional development outside the company in the USA he became the managing director at the corporate headquarters of Kraftverkehr Nagel in Versmold in 2002.

Following a short discontinuation of his activities in 2008 the family appointed him spokesman of the management board, later the CEO of the corporate group. Berhard Heinrich’s work was essentially focussed on the strategic development of the group linked to clear growth targets. Marion Nagel (spokeswoman of the owner family): “We would like to thank Mr Heinrich for his many years of successful management of our group. He has managed to increase the strategic growth of the Nagel-Group by about EUR 1 billion.”

Moreover, after the successful reorganisation of the management structure and the fundamental extension of the frozen food division Bernhard Heinrich achieved strategically significant corporate targets. Bernhard Heinrich: “I am grateful to the Nagel family for the trust they have always put in me. My responsibility for the company has always been my most important concern. As our joint strategic targets have been achieved, I shall now dedicate myself to new challenges.”

For any questions please contact management spokesman Frank Böschemeier.
