trans-o-flex ThermoMed: one MD for Austrian and German transport networks

Actively temperature-controlled transport of pharmaceutical products: Stefan Gerber, Managing Director of trans-o-flex ThermoMed Austria, will also take over the management of the German network

(PresseBox) (Weinheim, ) With effect from 1st November 2015, Stefan Gerber (54) has taken over the management of the German trans-o-flex ThermoMed GmbH & Co. KG. Thus, the management of the German and the Austrian networks for the actively temperature-controlled transport of pharmaceuticals has, for the first time, been assigned to one Managing Director. Until now, Stefan Gerber has been Chief Executive Officer of trans-o-flex ThermoMed Austria and will also hold this position in the future. Ernst Trpak will continue as a Managing Director of the Austrian organisation and Christian Knoblich, Managing Director Sales & Marketing of trans-o-flex Logistics Group, will continue as a Managing Director of ThermoMed GmbH & Co. KG in Germany.

In addition to the management of trans-o-flex ThermoMed Austria, Stefan Gerber has already been responsible for several strategic projects for the trans-o-flex Logistics Group in Germany. This is why he has a good knowledge of both the German network of trans-o-flex Schnell-Lieferdienst and the network of the German ThermoMed organisation. He was born in Germersheim (Palatinate) and studied at the university of Mainz. The holder of a diploma in economics gained valuable experience from his work for UPS and the then system partner B.O.S. in the trans-o-flex network. In his new position with trans-o-flex ThermoMed Germany, he directly succeeds Uwe Brosius, who left the company at the end of October upon his own request.
