New CEO of Vanderlande announced

Vanderlande has announced the appointment of Andrew Manship as its next Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Andrew will take up the position on 1 January 2024, succeeding current CEO, Remo Brunschwiler, who has the intention to end his executive management career on 31 December 2023 and thereafter transition to non-executive management positions.

Andrew is currently the company’s Executive VP BU Airport & Parcel Solutions. He brings a strong customer-driven focus to his new role, as well as a deep understanding of Vanderlande’s business strategy, activities and global markets. He has been with the company since 2016 and has successfully merged Vanderlande’s airport and parcel businesses. In addition, Andrew can lean on a wealth of experience within the automated material handling industry and a track record of delivering added value to customers in highly competitive markets.

The Chairman of Vanderlande’s Supervisory Board, Norio Wakabayashi, sees the benefit of appointing an outstanding internal candidate as the new CEO: “We are convinced that Andrew is the best candidate to lead Vanderlande through its next phase of growth. He has successfully expanded the global airport business for the company and realised valuable portfolio synergies with the parcel business. Vanderlande will continue to benefit from his visionary industry expertise and unwavering customer focus, reinforced by his value-driven ethos.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Remo for his leadership of Vanderlande. His clear strategic focus on organisational development and sustainable platform-based solutions has given the company a strong foundation for future growth and a better position from which to succeed.”

“It has been a pleasure to have been the CEO of Vanderlande for almost seven years and – with the support of the organisation – continuously strive for a high performance that results in innovative solutions for the benefits of our customers,” says Remo Brunschwiler. “I have enjoyed working with talented colleagues, who have helped me to move our customers’ businesses forward on a global scale. I will hand over my CEO responsibilities to Andrew in January 2024, safe in the knowledge that he brings great determination and energy to the role, with a customer-centric focus.”

Andrew commented: “I am honoured to have been appointed as Remo’s successor, with the opportunity to lead Vanderlande as a trusted partner for future-proof logistics process automation,” says Andrew Manship. “I aim to build on the company’s extensive portfolio of integrated solutions to serve the needs of our customers. In addition, I look forward to working with Vanderlande’s global team, as well as Toyota Industries Corporation, to deliver optimal value. And finally, I would also like to thank Remo for the trust and support he has given me over the years.”
