With Frederik Luz, we are bringing a recognized top specialist on board as head of the Business Unit Logistics.
An impressive career path
Born in Frankfurt, Frederik Luz can look back on renowned career positions with leading global providers of global logistics services and digital innovation drivers in the logistics industry.

With effect from July 01, 2022, Frederik Luz took over management of the Business Unit Logistics at the Frankfurt site.
In addition to outstanding technical expertise and a likeable personality, the logistician brings with him many years of experience in recruiting and promoting talent and thus enriches the management team of the Executive Search Specialists HAGER as head of the agile Business Unit Logistics.

"After very good years in the operational area, I would like to be closer to people and, in particular, to contribute my experience with the new, digitally influenced generation of logisticians and their mindset. This generation is absolutely needed in today's highly attractive logistics industry, which is still undergoing an enormous transformation process. The digital pioneering role of HAGER im Executive Search has impressed me for a long time, and as a team leader who knows the challenges of the international transport and logistics sector very well, I would like to support customers in finding precisely the right talent for their company, with whom they can go strongly into the digitized future," explains Fredrik Luz his current move.
