New generation takes over the reins at Leschaco

BREMEN. The next generation is moving in at the Leschaco Group. “I signed over 80 per cent of the shares in Leschaco to my children in late August,” confirmed Jörg Conrad, CEO of the Leschaco Group, based in Bremen, in December. Since the autumn of 2021, Constantin Conrad is also the managing director and sole authorised signatory of the holding company Lexzau, Scharbau GmbH & Co. KG in addition to his position as Chief Digital Officer (CDO) on the Group’s management board. The 30-year-old will also assume the position of CEO when his father steps down from running the day-to-day operations of the company in a few years’ time. His sister Charlotte Conrad will initially be involved primarily as an “active partner”. She became a mother in spring 2021 and is gradually resuming her duties in the company’s Human Resources department following maternity leave. The management board, however, will remain unchanged – Jörg Conrad and his son Constantin will share this with Sirka Hintze (CFO) and Oliver Oestreich (COO).
