Management Change NX Switzerland
1st September 2022
In September 2022, Nippon Express Switzerland Ltd. will have a change in the top management. Beat Högger takes over the Presidency of the Board of Directors of Nippon Express Switzerland Ltd. and, after 8 years, hands over the operational management of the company to Andre Kaiser who will be the new ManagingDirector.
NX Switzerland developed dynamically in the past years and grew from 18 employees to 42 employees and can expect a net sales result in 2022 of CHF 35-37 million. One of the key success factors are our committed and motivated employees. Mr. Kaiser would like to build on that. According to him, well-trained employees are needed in order to be able to realize the future growth. The aim is to provide NX Switzerland with attractive and modern working conditions, development and training opportunities.
As specified by Mr. Kaiser the Group’s target for NX Switzerland will be substantial growth in the years to come. In addition to consistent market cultivation and focused account management, the plan is to continue to develop structurally to lead Nippon Express into the "Top 10" of Swiss-based logistics companies in the medium term by maintaining a service culture of the highest quality.
Mr. Kaiser started his career in forwarding and logistics with Panalpina in Asia, first in Singapore and Jakarta on operational level, and then in Tokyo, where he focused on sales for three years of his professional life. He took further career stages both in Operational and Sales Management at Panalpina in Bangkok before being relocated to Luxemburg as the regional head of airfreight Europe. From 2010 to 2017, he subsequently served as Switzerland's country head of airfreight prior going back into Sales and Global Key Account Management as of 2017. At the time when DSV took over Panalpina, he transitioned to Kühne Nagel in 2020 and took on the role of National Account Manager and Global Key Account Manager serving multinational Companies with Headquarters in Switzerland.
