Austrian OEM, Schwarzmüller, has appointed a new Head of HR.
Effective immediately, 52-year-old German executive, Wolfgang Köster, will not just manage the company’s 2,300 staff, but also be responsible for employer branding and communications management at Schwarzmüller.
Drawing on more than 20 years of industry experience, Köster has made a name for himself in the field of change management as well as international project management, having worked in Germany, France, Brail, India, China and the US.
Upon his appointment, Köster made no secret about Schwarzmüller's ambitious growth plans going into the 2018 IAA season: “Schwarzmüller is evolving from a classic family company into a successful global player,” he commented.
“As a provider of intelligent vehicle solutions, product expertise and premium customer service are key for the long-term success of the Schwarzmüller brand,” he added. “That’s why people are at the very core of our future growth strategy.”
