New member of the Board from 2022

Rail Cargo Group will start the new year with Gottfried Eymer as a new face on the Board.

From 01.01.2022, the railway logistics expert Gottfried Eymer will join the Board, taking responsibility for market and sales. The lawyer succeeds Thomas Kargl, who is moving on to new professional challenges after more than four years on the Board team at Rail Cargo Group (RCG).

Gottfried Eymer will focus on RCG’s international orientation, with a particular emphasis on expansion towards Russia and Asia. He has amassed over 20 years of international management experience – most recently as Managing Director of the French subsidiary of DB, Euro Cargo Rail. Thanks to his in-depth knowledge of both strategy and operations, he is renowned in the railway industry as a true logistics expert.

RCG Spokesman of the Board, Clemens Först: “In Gottfried Eymer, ÖBB Rail Cargo Group has found a true railway logistics expert to lead its important sales and logistics activities. I’m very pleased that we were able to attract him to this strategically crucial position on the RCG’s Executive Board team. I wish him all the best and look forward to working together. At the same time, I would like to wholeheartedly thank his predecessor, Thomas Kargl, for his years of successful and loyal teamwork as a member of the Board. I wish him the very best of luck with his future professional and personal endeavours, and look forward to working with him again in the future.”
