Generation change in the Management Board

T‌he siblings Judith Deitert and Jonas Wissing have joined the Management Board of PFREUNDT GmbH and now form a management trio together with their father Ludger Wissing. Ludger Wissing has been Managing Director of the Südlohn-based family business, founded in 1979, since 1995. His daughter Judith Deitert and his son Jonas Wissing had initially planned a different professional future. Over time, however, they got to know the company better and better. After a trial year together, it was then decided for both of them to take over the management of the family business.

Judith Deitert has been working at PFREUNDT since 2011 and initially supported the HR and accounting departments in her early days. At the same time, she completed a part-time further training course to become a HR specialist and then studied Business Administration, also part-time. Jonas Wissing initially completed a degree in geoinformatics. However, when the desire to take over the management of PFREUNDT grew, he reoriented himself thematically in the direction of business informatics. In addition to his studies, he also supported PFREUNDT’s telephone support.

In 2019, the siblings decided to take over the management of the company together. “We complement each other well. I am more the commercial part, Jonas the technical. The combination makes us,” says Judith Deitert. After Judith Deitert and Jonas Wissing had gradually taken over the management of the individual company divisions over the year 2021, the siblings officially joined the management in the summer. “Our father is still part of the team. But in 2023, at the age of 67, he will go into his well-deserved retirement,” says Judith Deitert.

The two siblings are looking forward to their new task and the exciting challenges in the future. Together they will continue to develop the successful corporate strategy and further expand the international marketing of PFREUNDT weighing systems in close cooperation with PFREUNDT’s worldwide representatives. They will also invest in the Südlohn site. A second floor will be added to the office building before the end of this year and the neighbouring property has also already been acquired to enable further growth in the future.
