Garry Weber has announced the appointment of Angelika Schindler-Obenhaus as CEO, whose role will take effect from the end of the corporation’s 2021 annual general assembly.
Schindler-Obenhaus will succeed her predecessor Alexander Gedat, who assumed the role temporarily in February 2020.
She has been a member of the board since August 2020 through her role as COO, she was responsible for the design, production, procurement, and marketing/communication and will now also be taking on the responsibility for sales from Gedat.
Commenting on her new role as the CEO, Schindler-Obenhaus said: “I’m grateful for the trust that the supervisory board has placed in me – and also for the trust of our employees, who have all blown me away since I started at Gerry Weber.
“We are optimistic about our future and want to build on our previous success with Gerry Weber by again becoming the leader in the Modern Classic Mainstream segment.”
Dr Tobias Moser, chairman of the supervisory board of Gerry Weber International AG, added: “Angelika Schindler-Obenhaus has been a key player in paving the way back to success over the past few months, together with the other two Board members, and has brought strong focus on execution and put the Gerry Weber brand back on track.”
