Heidegunde “Heidi” Senger-Weiss

Heidegunde “Heidi” Senger-Weiss died at the age of 82 on October 19, 2023. Together with her husband Paul, she steered the fortunes of Gebrüder Weiss from 1968 to 2004. From 2005 to 2017 she served on the Supervisory Board. She remained closely engaged in Gebrüder Weiss until her death. As president of the Central Association of Freight Forwarding and Logistics, and in various functions at the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, she championed the interests of the logistics segment, emphasizing its importance for the economy.
