With Christiaan Carstens and Christian Piehler, two experienced managers and logistics experts move up to the management board of leogistics GmbH.
Hamburg, March 8, 2021 – Christiaan Carstens and Christian Piehler, long-time directors and executives of leogistics GmbH, are moving up to the company’s management team and will drive operational and strategic development alongside CEO André Käber. With this reorganization, leogistics is strengthening its national and international growth in all three business areas: SAP consulting and development, leogistics’ own solutions, and cloud platform myleo / dsc. Clients benefit from these decisions and associated measures through optimized service and even greater proximity to the digital supply chain specialist and its products.
The demand for IT services and efficient supply chain management solutions continues unabated and has been given a further boost by the Corona situation. Due to high demand and a steady expansion of its product portfolio, leogistics has acquired around 50 new clients in German-speaking Europe over the past two years. In addition, market developments show that demand for leogistics’ consulting and software services is also increasing from other regions outside the German-speaking world – above all North America, the Nordics and Eastern Europe.
In order to continue to grow in line with the market, the company must continually realign itself and establish structures that, on the one hand, support leogistics’ flat hierarchies and short decision-making paths, and, on the other hand, enable the targeted growth.
“Christiaan Carstens and Christian Piehler have been with the company for many years and have essentially shared responsibility for its positive development,” says André Käber, CEO leogistics GmbH. “Both identify 100 percent with the company, its vision and our goals. Therefore, I am looking forward to changing the future of supply chain management with them and the entire leogistics team.”
Christiaan Carstens previously held the role of Consulting Director at leogistics. He will continue to be responsible for this area and will expand it to include new markets and leogistics’ delivery models and solutions in an international context. In addition, Carstens will focus in particular on the further international development of the management and consulting organization. Previously, the business administration graduate and MSC spent almost four years as a Principal Business Consultant at SAP, after serving for twelve years as a logistics officer in the German Armed Forces Air Force.
Christian Piehler was previously Head of Sales & Marketing, responsible for the entire sales division of leogistics. New products, services and regions will greatly expand this area. His responsibilities will also include Customer Success Management. Prior to his career at leogistics, Piehler, who holds a degree in business, marketing, production and computer science, held positions including Global Account Manager Volkswagen Group for SAP and Sales Manager at Wallmedien AG.
