Vardis Supports Transporeon Again

Vardis proud to support Hg in appointing Peter Maluck as Chief Financial Officer at Transporeon


Peter Maluck recently appointed Chief Financial Officer at Transporeon Group.

Previously Peter worked for nine years in different finance functions at Airbus before spending the next 12 years in consultancy and as a CFO of various private equity-backed  companies. Between 2008 and 2009 he worked at AlixPartners before taking on the CFO position at DOCUgroup, a European-wide sales and marketing company for the construction in-dustry. Most recently, he successfully accompanied the growth of PlanetHome Group, one of the largest German real estate and mortgage brokers. In his role as CFO of Transporeon, the graduated industrial engineer succeeds Stephan Kniewasser, who is leaving the company.

"Peter Maluck brings impressive leadership qualities. I am looking forward to working with him. Together we will strengthen Transporeon's financial division and develop it into an optimal basis for the economic success of our company", says CEO Stephan Sieber. “We would like to thank Stephan Kniewasser for his outstanding contribution to the development of Transporeon over the last years.” 

"In the current environment, Transporeon is strategically well positioned to drive forward the coming changes in the logistics sector and to further strengthen its market position. I am looking forward to this challenge", adds Peter Maluck.
