Change of management

Andreas Geith has left Swisspacer to enjoy his retirement, and will be replaced by Victoria Renz-Kiefel, former director of strategy at Saint-Gobain High Performance Solutions.

Since the beginning of 2011, Andreas Geith has constantly moved the company and the warm edge forwards and ensured the international establishment of Swisspacer as a market and innovation leader, the company said. His team-based approach always focused on finding the right talents for the growth-orientated strategy, both in sales and marketing as well as in the area of technology and innovation.

“For over 28 years, [Andreas Geith] advanced and developed many areas with total dedication in a range of management positions at Saint-Gobain,” Reto Cometta, departmental general manager, said. “We wish him all the best for the future.”

Victoria Renz-Kiefel studied business management with stints in Shanghai, London and Paris, and she subsequently worked as a project leader at The Boston Consulting Group. In the last two years, Victoria was responsible for the strategy applied in high performance solutions at Saint-Gobain.

“We have found Ms Renz-Kiefel to be an extremely competent management personality and in particular consider her experience working on international, strategic projects to be of great added value for Swisspacer,” Reto said. “We are very confident that she will continue to move Swisspacer forwards in the future.”
