LOXXESS receives two awards from Bavar­i­an Min­is­ter Aiwanger

Loxxess AG, a medi­um-sized logis­tics com­pa­ny spe­cial­iz­ing in com­plex logis­tics and val­ue-added ser­vices head­quar­tered in Tegernsee, is one of the “Bavaria’s Best 50” com­pa­nies select­ed in 2022. Each year, the Bavar­i­an State Min­istry of Eco­nom­ic Affairs, Region­al Devel­op­ment and Ener­gy, gives the award to enter­pris­es with out­stand­ing per­for­mance, such as increase in sales and the num­ber of their employ­ees at an above-aver­age rate with­in the last five years.

Min­is­ter Hubert Aiwanger pre­sent­ed the award in a cer­e­mo­ny at Schleißheim Cas­tle north of Munich. Espe­cial­ly in times of the Coro­na pan­dem­ic and glob­al polit­i­cal crises, he said, it is par­tic­u­lar­ly impor­tant to hon­or the con­tri­bu­tion of medi­um-sized com­pa­nies to the econ­o­my. Through organ­ic and inor­gan­ic growth, Loxxess has man­aged to increase its sales by around 135 mil­lion euros to 230 mil­lion euros from 2017 to 2021 and has added around 500 employ­ees dur­ing this period.

In addi­tion to the “Bavaria’s Best 50” award, Christi­na Thurn­er and her Broth­er Dr. Claus-Peter Amberg­er, CEOs of Loxxess, have received the “Bavar­i­an Female Entre­pre­neur of the Year” award. It is the third time that the Min­istry has award­ed this title in recog­ni­tion of com­mit­ment to increas­ing the vis­i­bil­i­ty and rep­re­sen­ta­tion of women in man­age­ment positions.

“It is a great hon­or and plea­sure for us that Loxxess is one of the 50 best medi­um-sized com­pa­nies in Bavaria in 2022. As a third-gen­er­a­tion fam­i­ly busi­ness, social and eco­log­i­cal com­mit­ment in our region is par­tic­u­lar­ly close to our hearts, and we see this con­firmed today. I hope that my com­mit­ment will inspire fur­ther women to advance their careers and their com­pa­nies. This is espe­cial­ly true for the diverse and excit­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties in the dynam­ic world of logis­tics,” Thurn­er com­ments on the two awards.

Christi­na Thurn­er stud­ied eco­nom­ics at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Zurich, spe­cial­iz­ing in logis­tics. At Loxxess, she is a share­hold­er and board mem­ber respon­si­ble for IT, oper­a­tions, cor­po­rate devel­op­ment, mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions, the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals sec­tor, and the north­ern and east­ern regions of Ger­many. She is also a share­hold­er in the express ser­vice provider Trans-o-flex, where she is active­ly involved in shap­ing the direc­tion of the express ser­vice provider as a mem­ber of the share­hold­ers’ committee.

At the same time, the moth­er of two is involved as an advi­sor in the ini­tia­tive Die Wirtschafts­mach­er. More than 100 com­pa­nies from trade, indus­try and the ser­vice sec­tor, the media and acad­e­mia have joined forces here to pro­vide infor­ma­tion about the func­tions, diver­si­ty and prospects of logis­tics. The goal is to inspire younger peo­ple in par­tic­u­lar to pur­sue a career in the world of logistics.

In 2020, Christi­na Thurn­er was elect­ed to the board of the Ger­man Logis­tics Asso­ci­a­tion (BVL e.V.) — as one of the first female rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the SME sec­tor. With her pas­sion for inno­va­tion, she stands for mod­ern logis­tics and for a changed image of women in the industry.
