Högl Christmas Party

After all our hard work, it was time to celebrate!

For this year’s Christmas celebrations, the “shoe world” came to Austria.

Chairman of the Supervisory Board Joseph Lorenz, along with the Taufkirchner team, welcomed management teams from the international group companies in Shanghai and Moscow, as well as the Hungarian production team. Along with Director Patrick Lorenz and Managing Director Gerhard Bachmaier, Joseph Lorenz paid tribute to staff, in particular thanking long-serving employees for their exemplary performance and commitment.

Internationally acclaimed musician Paul Zauner, accompanied by New York pianist Carlton Holmes, along with singer Chanda Rule and African vocal group Nobuntu provided a festive atmosphere. 

We had plenty to celebrate: LORENZ Shoe Group was awarded the 2016 “ineo” award for exemplary teaching, Director Johann Pucher was awarded a silver medal at the WKOÖ awards, and Managing Directors Patrick Lorenz and Gerhard Bachmaier were each awarded honorary rings from the Taufkirchen/Pram community.

Die motivierten Lehrlinge freuen sich mit Personalchef Franz Richard und Kathrin Grillneder über die „ineo-Auszeichnung“.
