Mirco Schellenberg, Managing Director
Mirco has been a successful General Manager Sales for the past 3,5 years and was recently promoted to General Manager for MOL Logistics in Germany.
We asked him about his experience and intentions:
“In total of my 8 years now working for Japanese companies, I have to say that both cultures have a lot in common. We consider values as “the highest quality”, “being on time”, “trust” and others as very important. While the decision-making progress is completely different, a healthy mix of both is the key to success.”
Now to combine our Japanese heritage and the local, modern approach in Management, will be one of my main topics to move forward. We will focus heavily on our Japanese VIP customers and business, but we will expand our network and continue to become a more international player.
Although the labor market has been tight and difficult in recent years, HR related topics will remain a challenge, therefore staff development and retention will be another important theme for us. COVID, political crises and other unexpected events have led to massive disruption of supply chains in recent years. A redesign of production and local inventory management is the logical consequence.
MOL Logistics already supplies the highest quality in contract logistics and warehouse management. However, our presence in the German market is still too small to be recognized. The first steps of expansion have been taken this year and more will follow. This can be done by growing organically with our customer, but mergers and acquisitions can also be a significant solutions. Whatever it is, I welcome the challenge and look forward to following the new direction MOL Logistics and its affiliated group companies will take in the future.”
