Tanja, when did you decide to take over the company?
Tanja Ginzinger: There was no specific point in time. The interest has always been there because, or even though, you've overheard a lot of things at home *laughs*. In 2013, at the beginning of the strategy development, my brother
Franz and I were already involved and actively contributed to the development of the strategic thrust. At the time, this was designed so that we children would run the company together. Due to his death, this plan could not be implemented. Nevertheless, I wanted to take over the company and lead it safely into the future. Together with Michael Berger, I am already very much looking forward to the tasks ahead.
