German logistics provider Rhenus Group has named Tobias Bartz as CEO and chairman of the management board with effect from 1 April 2022.
The 45-year-old, who started his career as a management trainee at Rhenus in 2005, was mainly responsible for building the road freight business in France and Spain.
He became a member of the Rhenus management board in 2015 and ‘masterminded’ the growth of the air & ocean division from Singapore for three years, before returning to Germany in 2018. Bartz will retain his management position within this division alongside his appointment as CEO.
Outgoing chief Klemens Rethmann, who has held the position since 2008, will concentrate on his tasks on the executive board of the group’s parent company Rethmann SE.
Tobias said the company will focus on further growth and green and digital transformation over the next few years, as well as expanding its global network.
