Liebherr's third generation family management, from left to right: Patricia Rüf, Stéfanie Wohlfarth, Sophie Albrecht, Jan Liebherr.
Willi Liebherr, board president of Liebherr-International AG, and his sister Isolde Liebherr, vice president, have assigned a proportion of their shares in the Liebherr Group’s parent company to their children.
This will enable various duties and responsibilities to be transferred to the next generation. In the future individual group divisions will therefore be managed by Isolde or Willi Liebherr jointly with a representative of the third generation of Liebherrs to run the company.
Initially, members of the third generation Jan Liebherr, Stéfanie Wohlfarth, Sophie Albrecht and Patricia Rüf will assume responsibility step by step for corporate management and supervisory tasks.
"The way is now clear for the future management of the Liebherr Group, and to ensure that Liebherr will remain an independent family-owned company," said a company statement.
