Alfred Krobath’s departure in March 2021 meant a reorganisation of the PMS management team was required. In Invest AG (Raiffeisenlandesbank Upper Austria), which now has a 20% stake in the company, a positive solution has been found which makes the most of combined synergies and puts us in an even stronger market position.
Four new Authorised Officers appointed
Franz Grünwald, Managing Director and majority owner of PMS, has appointed four supporting Authorised Officers, who together with him now form the PMS management team. For this purpose the company has been divided into four divisions, each led by one Authorised Officer. The aim of appointing Martin Grünwald (HSEQ-IT and Shares Division), Andreas Hundsbichler (Manufacturing and Technology Division), Martin Blümel (Projects and Offices Division) and Wolfgang Sattler (Management and Business Development Division) as Authorised Officers is to enable quicker information flow and decision-making processes and to ensure that the company’s capacity to act is not dependent on Franz Grünwald as the sole Managing Director.
The new management team has agreed that the overriding principle behind this strategic realignment is “Sustainable enterprise and social security for our staff”.
The Authorised Officers have taken on a role with a considerable amount of responsibility. All of them have been in management positions at PMS for many years, and they will use their expertise, hard work and long-standing experience to help our business succeed.
We wish our new Authorised Officers all the best in their new roles, and courage and perseverance to overcome the challenges they will face. We hope they enjoy using their skills and foresight to forge a bright future for the PMS Group!
