Liebherr-International AG is pleased to announce it has made two new appointments to its administrative board. On 1 April 2023, Jan Liebherr will take over as President, with Stéfanie Wohlfarth becoming the new Vice President. Dr. h.c. Willi Liebherr and Dr. h.c. Isolde Liebherr – the previous holders of these positions – will remain members of the administrative board. This transfer of further responsibility from the second to the third generation of the family shareholders is another step in the generational change in the company’s management.

The active family shareholders in the administrative board are the siblings Dr. h.c. Willi Liebherr and Dr. h.c. Isolde Liebherr as representatives of the second generation, and Jan Liebherr, Stéfanie Wohlfarth, Sophie Albrecht, Patricia Rüf, Johanna Platt and Philipp Liebherr from the third generation.
