From generation to generation
Liebherr is an independent family-run business that has reached its second and third generation of joint management. This continuity differentiates the company and gives the Group a strong foundation for its success.
The highest echelon of the Group is the board of shareholders, comprised exclusively of family members. It has the final say in all fundamental matters concerning company policy, development policy and product policy as well as financial and investment policy. Aside from the siblings Dr. h.c. Willi Liebherr and Dr. h.c. Isolde Liebherr, members of the board also include Jan Liebherr, Stéfanie Wohlfarth, Sophie Albrecht, Patricia Rüf, Johanna Platt and Philipp Liebherr who represent the third generation of the company.
The children and grandchildren of the company's founder, Dr.-Ing. E.h. Hans Liebherr, who are active in the Group, ensure continuity in the organization's management. They guarantee that the Group stays inseparably attached to the Liebherr family, now and in the future, and that it is managed as an independent family-run business.
