It has been clear for a full year already: Gerhard Dichgans, longtime director of the VOG, will soon retire. For several months, the board has been looking hard for a possible successor. With the help of a renowned recruitment agency from Munich, they have looked at suitable candidates.

The 48-year-old Walter Pardatscher has, in the eyes of the board of directors, the best prerequisites for managing the business of the association in the future. Walter Pardatscher will complete his mandate as Managing Director of the Brenner Motorway and then, as of 1 August 2019 -according to a VOG press release- "he will bring all his experience in the fruit industry into the association."
