The Berndorf Band Group has started the new year with a new management team.
Alexander Leutner and Gernot Binder have both been appointed as the organisation’s CEO, following the long-standing Managing Director Herbert Schweiger at the company.
Alexander Leutner joined the company based in Lower Austria in 2014, where he worked as Executive Vice President of the International Commercial Division until the end of 2021 when he stepped up to be one part of the management duo.
With a Master’s degree in law, he brings a wealth of international experience to the table, having previously worked for global companies for many years. In 2008, he took on a new challenge by moving to Hungary with his wife and two children to run a business as general manager. Five successful years later he returned to Austria with his family and found a position with the Berndorf Band Group.
Gernot Binder gained his first professional experience in a technical company in the Triesting valley. This was followed by a career within the Berndorf Band Group, where he started in 1996 as Service and Training Manager. After two multi-year terms in the management of Berndorf’s overseas companies in the US, the father of three returned to Austria in 2014. He headed Berndorf Band Engineering GmbH as President until the end of 2021.
Gernot Binder said: “We want to encourage and inspire our staff to develop innovative ideas and deliver carefully considered customer solutions and excellent service.”
Alexander Leutner added: “We achieve this through our qualified employees, a unified market presence, good leadership, technological progress, modern working methods, digital opportunities, efficiency and cost management, and attentive governance of the organisation.”
The Berndorf Band Group is also restructuring to be able to react to the best of its ability to future challenges. For example, the Berndorf Band Group has implemented its own Product Management team at the headquarters in Lower Austria. In doing this, it wants to offer its customers even more customised products, guarantee an optimum production process, and be a competent contact partner. Furthermore, the company has decided to introduce a new Business Development department to further develop the steel belt systems. It will focus on recognising trends to always be up-to-date and to continuously develop its belt systems.
