BSH UK and Ireland chief executive Andreas Meier will step down from his role in February next year to take up a new position within the BSH Group.
Mr Meier, who has been responsible for the appliance giant’s UK and Irish operation for more than five years, will become executive vice-president and head of the consumer product division, taking on responsibility for the company’s SDA business.
Since he took over as CEO for the UK and Ireland division in 2014, the company has seen its market share grow, as well as an increase in revenue.
Commenting on his new role, Mr Meier said: “While I am very excited to be taking up this role, I will also be leaving the UK and Ireland with some regret. Despite numerous challenges and uncertainties, we have enjoyed a huge amount of success in the past five years.
“The foundation of this has been the professionalism and collaborative culture of our employees, as well as our exceptionally committed customer base, for which we are extremely grateful.
“During my time the whole team has worked hard to deliver extraordinary results for our company and, most importantly, a great service to our customers. I am extremely confident the UK and Ireland will continue to enjoy the success we have shared together in the coming years.”
A successor to the position of BSH UK and Ireland CEO will be announced in due course.
