With skill and passion, Helmut Pilz has shaped our sales organization since 1988. Eagerly, he opened up international markets with innovative products at IDEAL. With courage and persistence, he built up AKE in Bad Mitterndorf in 1998 – and led it to today’s success with a strong team.
Anyone, who dedicated his life for developing and selling fresh food solutions, would probably not be easy to embark on a new phase in life: As of February, Helmut Pilz will be taking his well-deserved retirement and will be handing over the chairmanship of the management board in equal parts to his two co-managers Andreas Pilz and Klaus Gaiswinkler.
As a co-owner of IDEAL and AKE, he will of course remain strongly connected to the group of companies – and will continue to be on hand with his experience and creativity on strategic matters.
We wish him much happiness, joy, health – as well as the same commitment to recreational activities as to his professional work.
