Panalpina has named Peter Ulber as its new CEO, starting June 1.
Ulber will replace Monika Ribar, who will step down from the position at the end of May. This management change has been planned and prepared by the board of directors of Panalpina World Transport and Ribar as part of the Swiss company’s succession process. Ribar has been a member of Panalpina’s management for almost 23 years and has led the freight forwarding and logistics company as CEO for the past seven years. She plans to focus on non-managerial functions outside of the company going forward.
Ulber worked for Kuehne + Nagel from 1985 to 2011. As a member of Kuehne + Nagel’s management board from 2008 onward, he was responsible for both sea freight and air freight, as well as the global sales organization. At the end of 2011, he went into business himself as co-founder and partner of Charleston Enterprise Group.
