Effective 6 February 2020, Riveiro assumed management of Krone Trailer España SLU (KTE) and Krone Fleet España SLU (KFE) and will first be responsible for the strategic reorientation of the two Krone companies.
Roberto Asin will focus on sales activities and will continue to act as the first point of contact for Spanish customers in the new vehicle and rental business.
“We are very pleased that with François Riveiro we have been able to win a proven industry expert for the Krone team,” said Dr Frank Albers, Managing Director Sales and Marketing.
“Together with our teams from KTE and KFE, François Riveiro will continue to push our activities on the Spanish market.
“Under the leadership of François Riveiro we can now position ourselves even better as a competent service provider for Spanish transport companies,” he said.
Riveiro was most recently Managing Director of Carrier Transicold España for more than a decade and was also responsible for the Portugese market.
