A New CFO for Omega
Austrian broadliner Omega has hired Florian Wallner as its new CFO. The proven industry expert is moving from Ingram Micro Austria to Omega and will support the management team in the further development of the company. Ideally equipped for the future: Omega benefits from Wallner's outstanding know-how in the international distribution business and his financial expertise.
"After many years of working for large corporations, I am delighted to be taking on responsibility with immediate effect in a large and successful Austrian company like Omega and to play an active role in its further development. Omega is a successful company with high dynamics and speed. This combination and the ability to respond quickly and unbureaucratically to the needs of customer partners has always made me a little envious from the outside over the last 20 years. Now I am part of the team myself and can contribute my full energy", explains Florian Wallner.
