ILF Consulting Engineering GmbH Germany has a new Management: With immediate effect, Tobias Walk (47) and Fred Wendt (48) have taken over as the global engineering firm’s Managing Directors from Dr.-Ing. Stefan Bürkle and Stefan Beck. Their appointment is ILF’s commitment to continuity, as both new Managing Directors have been serving ILF in various positions for many years – Walk for 21 years and Wendt for 16 years.

“This appointment is our strong signal for continued excellence, internal as well as external”, says Bernard Lässer, Executive Vice President of ILF Group on behalf of the owners. Adolf Feizlmayr, one of the two founders of ILF and Chairman of ILF’s Supervisory Board adds: “We are excited to have Tobias Walk and Fred Wendt take up the challenge to take ILF into a successful future. Our competitive edge in the demanding German market requires maximum competence. Competence for ILF is not only ultimate creativity and expertise, but also market-leading project management and highly efficient operations. With our new Management we are in an excellent position for a successful future.”

The new Managing Directors bring strong expertise in various business areas and international markets from major strategic projects to their new positions: Tobias Walk in Oil & Gas, and Fred Wendt in Energy. “IlF has gained a reputation for motivation, enthusiasm, and customer oriented solutions. I am excited to move ILF further along in my new position”, says Tobias Walk. “Our focus for the future will be growth via our regional markets. Our customers want us to be close to them. This is why we will further strengthen customer-centricity”, adds Fred Wendt.
