New management at PIA Automation Austria

The reorganization of the management has set the course for a successful future within the PIA Group. The new management board of Linden (CEO), Maierhofer (COO) and Kahr (CSO) is looking positively into the future.

Due to the company’s rapid growth and the positive development, PIA Automation Austria GmbH decided to reorganize the management board. On the one hand, the new management is now perfectly positioned to meet the challenges of the future, and on the other, a clear sign of continuity and retention of the well-known quality and innovative strength has been set.

Johannes Linden (48) was appointed CEO of PIA Automation Austria with effect from October 16, 2017. He has many years of management experience in the field of mechanical engineering and is also the CEO of the parent company PIA Automation Holding in Bad Neustadt a.d. Saale, Germany. Anton Maierhofer (51) continues to head the Operations Division on the management board as COO. With effect from November 1, 2017, Norbert Kahr (42), most recently Vice President Global Sales of the M&R Group, took over management board responsibility for Sales as CSO. Both men are solid examples of consistency and reliability.

The quality that has been known for almost 30 years will continue to be delivered in the future. Together with the new management, PIA Automation Austria will continue its success story as part of the PIA Group.
