METRO Austria CEO Xavier Plotitza notes, "We owe the past 50 years to our employees, our partners and our customers. Together, we are Team METRO, which sticks together even when there is no jubilant mood at the moment due to COVID-19. Our customers can always rely on the quality of our products and the fair price-performance ratio. We provide the best possible predictability and offer stability for our customers. Our decades of experience in wholesale make us the ideal partner for business customers, and our activities should always offer them real added value, certainly also in our anniversary year."
Togetherness and genuine partnership are the best recipe for success, especially in challenging times. This is why togetherness plays a central role in METRO Austria's corporate and success philosophy, which is highlighted in the anniversary campaign. The motto “When you grow together instead of fighting alone – TEAM METRO - unbeatable for 50 years” therefore focuses on all the people who have contributed to the company's success over the past 50 years.
