With Heimo Scheuch and Willy Van Riet, we have the benefit of an experienced top management team which has not only succeeded in securing Wienerberger's above-average profitable growth in recent years, but is also excellently qualified to address the challenges of the future, such as the growing trend toward digitization and the technological changes in our industry.
