The Gauselmann Group has announced a management reshuffle with a new team set to oversee day-to-day operations from October.
Adp Gauselmann will welcome a new management team from the start of October. Management Board members and managing directors Jürgen Stühmeyer, Werner Schroer and Lars Felderhoff are handing over the reins of day-to-day management to Dominik Raasch, director of product management, Frank Gläser, deputy director of research and development and Jochen Clemens, head of finance and the company’s deputy CFO.
Stühmeyer is handing over responsibility for sales to Raasch. The 37-year-old started his career with the Gauselmann Group as a Bachelor student in September 2004. After successfully completing a post-graduate MBA programme and professional stints as organisation consultant, head of market research, head of brand management and consultant to the management board, Raasch was appointed head of national and international product development in May 2019. As Stühmeyer’s successor he will also become management spokesman.
Schroer is handing over the reins of R&D to Gläser. The 52-year-old successfully completed his degree in electrical engineering and has been working for the Gauselmann Group since January 2002. In July 2011, Gläser obtained a general management degree from the St. Gallen Business School. Having held positions as team leader touchscreen development and head of planning and development of new technologies, he was appointed deputy research and development division manager in early 2020.
Felderhoff will cede responsibility for administration and finances to Clemens. The 35-year-old started as an administrative clerk in the taxation department in June 2007 and during this time successfully graduated with a BA degree in tax law. In September 2012, he was appointed assistant to the commercial director. After obtaining his Master’s degree in tax law, Jochen Clemens was appointed head of finance of adp Gauselmann and deputy CFO in May 2018. “This will not bring about any changes in the overall responsibility for the Merkur business segment. Rather, the new appointments will remove the dual function of the three previous managing directors with their respective Management Board divisions and distribute responsibility within the business segment across several shoulders,” the company explained. “At the same time, this new structure will guarantee that the company will continue to make a significant contribution to the corporate success of the Gauselmann Group.”
Production management will remain in the hands of Hans-Martin Grube, while Joachim Mohrmann will continue to be responsible for service.
