Johannes Schweiger strengthens WITRON management

Johannes Schweiger strengthens WITRON management


Starting May 1, 2020 Johannes Schweiger is going to strengthen the WITRON management. The motivation for this decision is the enormous growth of employees of WITRON Service and it is expected to increase significantly in the future: Currently, about 2,200 employees worldwide work in the Service division, which is slightly more than 50 % of the total WITRON personnel of about 4,000 employees. By 2023, the number of colleagues in the Service division is expected to double as a result of signed contracts.

As an additional CEO of WITRON Service GmbH & Co. KG, the 32-year old Johannes Schweiger will share the responsibilities in Europe and North America/Australia with Christian Dietl. The significantly growing number of employees and the associated variety of topics demand a clear definition and focus on responsibilities from the CEO team, which is provided by the strengthening.

Johannes Schweiger, with a Master of Business Administration, joined WITRON in January 2013 and one year later moved internally to the Human Resources department of WIOSS. Since 2017, he has been responsible for the enormous employee development worldwide as the Head of Human Resources of WITRON Service and thus enabled the overall growth of Service.
