From generation to generation
Liebherr is an independent family-run company, which is managed jointly by the second and third generation of the Liebherr family. This continuity, as well as the focus on long-term success, sustainable development, stability and reliability, characterise the leadership philosophy of management.
The top decision-making and management body of the Group is the Administrative Board, which is made up exclusively of family members. It makes decisions on all fundamental issues of corporate, development and product policy, as well as financial and investment policy. Apart from siblings Dr. h.c. Willi Liebherr and Dr. h.c. Isolde Liebherr, as representatives of the second generation of the Liebherr family, this body also includes Jan Liebherr, Stéfanie Wohlfarth, Sophie Albrecht, Patricia Rüf, Johanna Platt and Philipp Liebherr as representatives of the third generation of the Liebherr family.
The children and grandchildren of the company founder Dr.-Ing. E.h. Hans Liebherr who are active in the Liebherr Group ensure the continuity in the company management. They guarantee that the Group is also inextricably linked to the Liebherr family in the future and is managed as an independent family-run company.
