At its meeting on March 15, 2018, the supervisory board of Michael Wei-nig AG confirmed Wolfgang Pöschl in his office as Chairman of the Man-agement Board until reaching his retirement age on December 31, 2020.

The supervisory board expressed its fullest confidence in him, combined with thanks and great appreciation for his work so far.

We want to continue the success story of our company together with him.” He described the extension of the contract as a valuable piece of continuity for the company.
