From January there will be a new leader at the helm of Gustav Daiber.
66-year-old Rolf Daiber is passing the reins to his nephew – 43-year-old Kai Gminder. Mr Gminder is the fourth generation in the 108-year history of the company that was founded by Gustav Daiber.
Mr Daiber took over from his father Walter Daiber in 1974 at the age of 19. Now he is going to spend his retirement sailing and travelling.
Mr Gminder has been with the company for a number of years, working during the school holidays in the embroidery, ironing and printing departments, before taking the role of sales manager. Since 2012 he has been supporting his uncle as managing director.
2021 will see Daiber launch its software solution (ERP) and build online tools with which to support the company’s dealers. Warehouse space will also be optimised to provide more space for the constantly growing product range.
