trans-o-flex Expands Management Team

Ulrich Schupp appointed Managing Director for Finance and Administration

(PresseBox) (Weinheim, ) The trans-o-flex management team is expanding. From April 2011, Ulrich Schupp (44) will be responsible for the areas of finance and administration. Schupps' predecessor, Thomas Doll, returned to Österreichischen Post AG in March 2010 as scheduled following a three-year secondment. Since then, the Managing Director responsible for operations, Wolfgang Weber, has also been temporarily responsible for finance and administration. With Schupp's arrival this area will once again be managed independently. Originally from Heidelberg, he has worked for the Schenker Group since 2002, most recently as Chief Financial Officer. He graduated from Mannheim University with a diploma in economics, majoring in logistics, marketing and employment law. "We are delighted by this true strengthening of our team and with our collaboration with Ulrich Schupp!" is the unanimous verdict of both trans-o-flex Managing Directors Kai Schmuck and Wolfgang Weber.
