In future, the Goldhofer Group will be operating on the market in two business fields, namely Transport Technology and Airport Technology, each headed by its own Board Member. This measure has been taken in response to the very different market demands made in the two business segments. This clear focus on the two groups of customers will deliver a sustainable impulse in terms of both customer service and market presence for future growth in the two business fields.
At January 1, 2017, Mr Lothar Holder assumed responsibility for Airport Technology as Member of the Board at Goldhofer Aktiengesellschaft and Managing Director at its subsidiary Schopf Maschinenbau GmbH.
Mr Holder spent many successful years working in various management functions at home and abroad for the Daimler Group. In his last position there he held responsibility for Setra Buses on the management board of EvoBus GmbH (Daimler Buses). In the last three years, following his departure from Daimler, Mr Holder was COO at Schulz Group GmbH of Ravensburg, where his responsibilities included the introduction and development of alternative drive technologies for commercial vehicles.
