Entrepreneurs Meet the entrepreneurs who are taking tomorrow.
LIVEKINDLY Collective, Girteka, Linet and CropX are just a few of the private companies that have turned to Credit Suisse to help them transform their vision into a thriving business.
Girteka. Driven to grow responsibly.
Girteka is Europe’s largest long-haul truck company by assets. Founded 25 years ago, it has doubled in size every three years so that today it leads a sector worth €100 billion a year and employs over 18,000 people.
According to Girteka CEO Edvardas Liachovičius, the company has been able to sustain such rapid growth because its management knows that with success comes responsibility – to its customers and its workforce. By constantly investing in new technology and training, Edvardas and his team are able to attract and retain reliable drivers, who deliver their customers’ cargos safely and on time. It’s a virtuous circle.
“We deliver our customers’ promises to their customers,” he says.
Watch Edvardas share how he has delivered high growth year in, year out, by behaving responsibly.
