Heiko Wrobel takes on professorship at Nürnberg Tech.

New Chair at Nürnberg Tech »Logistics, Wholesale, and General Business Administration«.

Since the start of the winter semester 2017/18, Dr. Heiko Wrobel has held the position of Professor at the Chair of Logistics, Wholesale, and General Business Administration at Nürnberg Tech. Besides a wealth of supply chain expertise acquired over many years in his role as Head of Group Processes at the Fraunhofer Center for Applied Research on Supply Chain Services (SCS), Dr. Wrobel, Doctor of Business Administration and qualified wholesale expert, also boasts more than twenty years of experience in his field.

Generating revenue of more than 1.2 trillion euros and encompassing more than 150,000 companies, wholesale trade is very important for the German economy. Despite this, to date, this area has barely been touched on in research and teaching. The new chair at Nürnberg Tech, however, is set to close this gap in research. At the same time, the close collaboration with Fraunhofer SCS, where Dr. Wrobel will continue in his existing role, will boost both institutions’ capacity for pushing the area of digital services in the wholesale industry.
