Panalpina’s Chief Operating Officer, Andy Weber, has decided to leave Panalpina for personal reasons.
Andy Weber, Chief Operating Officer (COO) and a member of the Executive Board, joined Panalpina in 2015. He has successfully led many turnaround projects and made the business segment Energy and Project Solutions fit for competition in the challenging energy and capital projects sector.
“With a track record of over 30 years in the freight forwarding industry, Andy Weber is a very experienced manager. While I regret his departure, I am pleased that he has agreed to continue to support Panalpina in a consulting role and that the company can further rely on his expertise for specific projects,” says Stefan Karlen, CEO of Panalpina.
Weber will leave the company at the end of the year. The COO position will not be replaced.
