The Board of Directors of Vetropack Holding has appointed two new business division managers.

With effect from January 1, 2018, Boris Sluka (1965) will take over as General Manager of the Business Division Czech Republic/Slovakia, which comprises the two companies Vetropack Moravia Glass and Vetropack Nemšovà.

With effect from 1 March 2018, Johann Eggerth (1967) will take over as General Manager of the Business Division Switzerland/Austria, which comprises the Swiss company Vetropack Ltd and Vetropack Austria. He has also been appointed a member of Group Management.

Mr Sluka graduated from the Technical University in Bratislava, Slovakia, and continued his education on a part-time basis while working in, among other places, France, Russia and Austria.

In recent years he has worked mainly in the automotive industry. As a senior manager at various automotive suppliers he acquired international industry experience and expertise in focused management in a dynamic environment.

The current General Manager of the Vetropack Business Division Czech Republic/Slovakia, Gregor Gábel, will be commencing his retirement after the handover period.

Mr Eggerth graduated from the Montanuniversität Leoben (in Metallurgy/Materials Engineering) and has broad international professional experience.

He worked as a project leader and product manager at Voest-Alpine Industrieanlagenbau and on international consultancy projects for McKinsey & Company before setting up and running the engineering and consultancy company Festool Engineering for the Festool Group. Since 2012, he has been CEO at the Tirolean family-owned paint company Adler. His main task there was to develop and implement a viable strategy for internationalisation and growth.

Mr Eggerth will take over from Johann Reiter who – as already announced in February 2017 – will assume full responsibility for the operational management of Vetropack Group with effect from 1 January 2018.

Until his successor arrives on 1 March 2018, Mr Reiter will continue as General Manager of the Business Division Switzerland/Austria alongside his work as Group CEO.
