Robert Gutsche is set to take over as CFO of the owner-managed logistics company Röhlig. He will be responsible for finance, taxes, legal affairs and IT. Previously, Gutsche served as CEO at IFA Holding GmbH, where he held that position amongst others for the past years. The 53-year-old will succeed Hans-Ludger Körner, who will take on new professional challenges following his time at Röhlig.
Dr. Robert Gutsche is a lawyer, certified public accountant and auditor (USA). He was a partner and member of the board for many years at KPMG Germany, before joining as CFO and later as Managing Director at IFA Holding GmbH. At Röhlig, the proven financial expert will succeed Hans-Ludger Körner, who will depart from the company at the end of 2019 and has yet to announce his next career move.
“We are pleased that with the addition of Dr. Gutsche we could gain such a highly experienced manager with an international orientation for our board”, explains Philip W. Herwig, Managing Partner of Röhlig Logistics. “At the same time we would like to thank Hans-Ludger Körner for his successful work over the past eleven years at Röhlig, where he further developed the company’s healthy financial base and gave an important drive. We wish him all the best for his future and continued success.”
In the future, the Global Executive Board will consist of Philip W. Herwig (Chairman), Hylton Gray, Ulrike Baum and Dr. Robert Gutsche.
