Management Board members and managing directors Jürgen Stühmeyer, Dr. 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.

Jürgen Stühmeyer is handing over responsibility for Sales to Dominik Raasch. The 37-year-old started his career with the Gauselmann Group as a Bachelor student on 1 September 2004. After successfully completing a post-graduate Master of Business Administration programme and professional stints as Organisation Consultant, Head of Market Research, Head of Brand Management and Consultant to the Management Board, Dominik Raasch was appointed Head of National and International Product Development in May 2019. As successor to Jürgen Stühmeyer, he will also become Management Spokesman.

Dr. Werner Schroer is handing over the reins of Research and Development to Frank Gläser. The 52-year-old successfully completed his degree in electrical engineering and has already been working for the Gauselmann Group since 1 January 2002.

After obtaining his Master’s degree in tax law, Jochen Clemens was appointed Head of Finance of adp Gauselmann GmbH 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 MERKUR business segment across several shoulders. 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 capable hands of Hans-Martin Grube. Joachim Mohrmann will continue to be responsible for Service in the usual quality.
