Thursday, February 14, 2002

Milano , 14 February 2002 - Matthias Draeger, 34, is the new number one at Autogrill Schweiz. Having joined the company at the beginning of 2002 after a long spell in Gate Gourmet, he now heads an organization that controls 72 sales outlets in Autogrill’s four core channels: motorways, airports, railway stations and shopping malls.
Matthias Draeger takes the helm in Switzerland from Peter Herzog, former head of Passaggio Holding (acquired by Autogrill from Bon Appetit in December 2000) and subsequently of Autogrill Schweiz.
After 11 years spent growing the SSG company, establishing Passaggio in Switzerland as a highprofile food and beverage brand for people on the move, and overseeing Passaggio’s merger with Autogrill and the re-organization of operations in Austria and Germany, Peter Herzog is leaving the company on his request and in full agreement with senior management to follow a challenging new international career.
