The new financial year begins for truck toll operator Toll Collect with two personnel changes to the Executive Board. The German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) has appointed Ute Oldenburg, formerly Chief Financial and Controlling Officer for DB Station & Service AG, as Chief Operating and Financial Officer, effective from 01/09/2019. She succeeds Thomas Eberhardt, who is leaving the company at his own request after 13 years as an Executive.
Mark Erichsen has been appointed as the new Chief Technical Officer. He was most recently an external programme leader with the federal Autobahn GmbH and previously served in the same capacity at Toll Collect as part of the successful implementation of the "Toll on All Federal Trunk Roads" project. He takes over his new position from Robert Woithe, who had held this role since 2010 and is also leaving the company at his own request.
"I look forward to working together with Ute Oldenburg and Mark Erichsen. They both enjoy an excellent reputation. I thank their predecessors for their many years of successful work for our company", said Chief Executive Officer of the Toll Collect Executive Board Gerald Schulz.
