Wienerberger Realigns Corporate Structure

Wienerberger AG recently announced the realignment of its corporate organization, which reportedly reflects the new divisional structure that resulted from the takeover of Pipelife and creates leaner, more efficient structures. Areas with similar market dynamics and growth drivers were combined into three divisions: Bricks & Tiles Europe, Pipes & Pavers and North America.

In addition, the managing board was reduced from three to two members; Johann Windisch has resigned at his own request and will take on operational responsibility for the Bricks & Tiles Division in Europe. He will be joined by Christof Domenig (former executive managing director, West Europe) as COO and deputy CEO and Gerhard Hanke (formerly responsible for Corporate Controlling) as CFO. The European brick business will reportedly be placed under unified management with an experienced team, which is intended to lead to the better use of available strengths and the further optimization of processes.
