Markus Kirchhoff is the Head of Swisslog AutoStore
Swisslog has announced a series of new appointments within its senior management team to support continued growth and stability.
Antonio Trioschi has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer. He joined Swisslog nine years ago and has since held several leadership positions across the business.
Most recently, Antonio was responsible for the unity of two regions, Central and Greater Europe, into one strong EMEA region. He succeeds Dr. Christian Baur, who left Swisslog in June and who has played a key role in setting Swisslog on the path to growth over the past six years.
“As we strive to expand our business in a fast-paced industry, our focus is to provide the best possible service to both new and existing customers,” explained Trioschi.
Jens Schmale joined Swisslog in 2020 to strengthen its AutoStore offering and has been instrumental in the achievements of the business unit over the last year. Prior to joining Swisslog, he was, among other duties, the Managing Director of a German AutoStore distributor.
“I am fully committed to deriving supply chain innovation through robotic and data-driven solutions,” noted Schmale.
Based in the company’s Dortmund office, Schmale is set to further strengthen Swisslog’s market position within countries across the EMEA region.
Markus Kirchhoff succeeds Schmale as Head of Swisslog AutoStore Europe, bringing many years of industry management experience to the role.
