At the end of 2018, HAM-LOG-GRUPPE succeeded in recruiting Thomas Winkelmann as Area Manager and since mid-2020 he has been Managing Director of HAM-LOG-GRUPPE Fachpersonal GmbH. Born in Erfurt, he previously worked as Manager Operations (Site Manager) at BLG Handelslogistik for the customer, IKEA Germany.

Throughout his logistics career, the industrial engineer with a degree in logistics, transport and communication has relied on a clear structure and dedicated responsibility to optimise processes. In doing so, the humorous human resources expert always puts the employees of the HAM-LOG GRUPPE at the centre, “it‘s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.”
