A third-generation member of the founding Gauselmann family has been named to the supervisory board of Gauselmann AG. In an appointment that was effective July 1, Janika Gauselmann succeeded Max Walberer, who died last spring after serving on the board for 28 years.
The corporate group currently employs 13,500 people worldwide and generated sales in excess of €3.6 billion (US$4 billion) in the 2018 financial year.
Paul Gauselmann, founder and chairman of the company’s management board, said, “I’m proud that my granddaughter Janika is reinforcing our supervisory board.”
Following my sons Armin and Karsten, she represents the third generation in our family-owned company. Employees across the group will surely appreciate the fact that with Janika in the third generation, this important position in the company is now being filled by a woman.”
Alongside Grünewald and Janika Gauselmann, the third member of the supervisory board is Karsten Gauselmann. Armin Gauselmann is vice chairman of the management board.
