Kludi announces new management model

The Menden-based fittings specialist focuses on customer orientation and medium-sized company culture.

The basic principle of the Kludi Group’s new customer-oriented management model is assigning sales markets to all members of the management. The goal is to maximise customer focus by enhancing the shared responsibility of the management level and to further optimise customer relations.

As a result, Julian Henco, in addition to his role as CEO, will take on responsi-bility for business development in the domestic market of Germany and also the Austrian, Chinese and Eastern Europe sales markets, which are markets of significance to Kludi group, effective from 01 April 2018.

At the same time, Frank Holtmann, responsible for finances, controlling, law and compliance, and for international holdings as the Group’s CFO, will take on responsibility for the French, Benelux, and Northern and Western European sales markets.

Bernd Neidhardt joins the management group as COO. He is responsible for the Production and Supply Chain in the Menden, Austria and Hungary plants and for the Kludi RAK joint venture in the United Arabic Emirates.

By giving all members of the highest management levels direct sales responsibility, Kludi is maximising its customer focus and service quality. “With this new management model, we are positioning ourselves as a contemporary and customer-focused company,” says Julian Henco. “At the same time, this also highlights our aim of maintaining the corporate culture of a medium-sized company, and giving our growth strategy another boost.”
