Effective July 1, 2019, the PERI Group Management will consist of the following departments:
Finance & Organisation - as before under the leadership of Dr. Fabian Kracht, who will continue to act as Spokesman of the Board
Production & Supply Chain - as in the past under the responsibility of Leonhard Braig
Sales & Engineering under Carl Heathcote, who will join the Group Management. He has been with the company for 29 years, most recently as Director of the Market Unit North America and Northern Europe.
In addition, a new, fourth Group Management department Innovation & Marketing will be installed. The search process for the Managing Director of this department has started.
In the course of these changes, Alexander Schwoerer, who was a member of the Group Management as representative of the Shareholder Family for more than 10 years, will join the Advisory Board of the PERI Group. He will take on the role of an active member of the Advisory Board together with his brother Christian Schwoerer and other members of the Shareholder Family. "I will contribute my deep knowledge of the company and our customers to the decisions of the Advisory Board and the management. I am looking forward to making even stronger contact with employees and customers in our international markets and to promoting talent," said Alexander Schwoerer.
"The new structure strengthens particularly Sales and Innovation and creates even better conditions for expanding our market and innovation leadership. We are strengthening the Advisory Board with my brother's experience from the operating business. With this step we will continue to maintain our structure as an independent family business, which has proven to be a great strength", says Christian Schwoerer, Chairman of the Advisory Board of the PERI Group.
