IFCO Systems today announced that Wolfgang Orgeldinger
would become Chief Executive Officer of the company, succeeding Karl Pohler,
who is retiring to pursue other interests. Mr Orgeldinger will also succeed Mr Pohler
as Group President of the Reusable Plastic Crates (RPCs) segment of IFCO's
parent company, Brambles Limited.
Mr Orgeldinger has been Chief Operating Officer of IFCO since 2002, responsible
for all aspects of the company’s operations, logistics, asset management and
information technology. He was Chief Information Officer of IFCO between 2000
and 2002, responsible for e-logistics and information technology.
The leadership succession process at IFCO follows the successful integration of
the business into Brambles since that company acquired the business in March
2011, and its development into the world’s leading provider of RPC pooling
solutions, serving retailers and fresh food producers from 45 locations with a pool
of more than 180 million RPCs.
