Prior to his new role, Schniederkötter held various management positions. He began his career in 1996 by training in the family business, before holding various posts with management responsibility in Germany and abroad.

As CEO of HOYER, Schniederkötter will replace Ortwin Nast who has decided to end his career and retire from the company after 14 years.

Commenting on the personnel decision, Thomas Hoyer, Advisory Board Chairman, said, “Not only do we have confidence in Mr Schniederkötter’s specialist know-how but also, in our intensive discussions, we have formed the impression that he both understands the requirements that HOYER as a family-run business expects of a CEO, and will put them into practice.”

“HOYER is a highly specialised logistics company with an international reputation. It combines clear value concepts with exacting standards regarding the quality and safety of its services. This combination is something special.”
