Background information

2022: Johann Pintarich became the sole CEO of Swiss business products organisation Office World Group in late 2021. He had been working in a number of senior executive roles since 2017 when MTH Retail Group bought Switzerland-based B2B reseller iba and multichannel operator Office World from Migros.

With a firm background in the B2B contract business from his six years at MTH Retail’s Pagro Direkt in Austria and long previous stints at Buhrmann, Corporate Express and Staples, Pintarich took over from Christa Furter as iba CEO in 2018.

Today, the Office World Group, which has sales of approximately CHF400 million ($404 million) and employs 600 staff, comprises a broad range of entities – all under the leadership of Pintarich. These include B2B reseller iba, B2B/B2C operator Office World with 19 stores and a considerable online presence, MPS provider Tramondi as well as three wholesale companies: Ecomedia, Papedis and Oridis.
