Gebr. Heinemann has appointed Michael Meier as Vice President Global Supply Chain, with effect from today (March 1).

Meier will be responsible for Logistics as well as Planning & Order Management. The position was previously held by Inken Callsen, who joined the Gebr. Heinemann Executive Board as Chief Commercial Officer in September 2023.

Meier will spearhead the creation of a global network that optimizes the flow of goods end-to-end – from production at the supplier to the store shelf.

Commenting on the appointment, Inken Callsen said, “Successful collaboration with our partners is key to our success in the supply chain. Michael Meier has achieved a lot in a short period of time, and I am convinced that he and his team are well positioned to tackle future challenges such as automation, digitalization and sustainability.”

Meier previously held the position of Director Planning & Order Management, having joined Gebr. Heinemann in 2022. Prior to that, he worked for a global skin care brand in Germany and abroad, where he was responsible for the supply chain.

"I am grateful for the trust Gebr. Heinemann has placed in me, and I am very much looking forward to my new challenge,” he said. “Now we have to focus on our growth. To this end, we will continue to work strategically with our various partners and further strengthen and expand these important alliances.”
