Germany’s Gauselmann Group announced that it will implement a new management structure as of October 1.
Gauselmann GmbH board members and managing directors Jürgen Stühmeyer, Dr. Werner Schroer and Lars Felderhoff are handing over 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 deputy CFO, according to Focus Gaming News.
Stühmeyer is handing over responsibility for sales to Raasch, who started his career with the Gauselmann Group as a bachelor student in 2004. After successfully completing a post-graduate MBA program and several management posts, Raasch was appointed head of national and international product Development in May 2019. As successor to Stühmeyer, he will also become management spokesman.
Schroer is handing over R&D to Gläser, who successfully completed his degree in electrical engineering and has been working for the Gauselmann Group since 2002. Having held positions as team leader at Touchscreen Development and head of planning and development of New Technologies, Gläser was appointed deputy research and development division manager in early 2020.
Felderhoff will transfer responsibility for administration and finances to Clemens, 35, who started as an administrative clerk in the Taxation Department in 2007 and during this time graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in tax law. In September 2012, he was appointed assistant to the commercial director. After obtaining his master’s degree in tax law, Clemens was appointed head of finance of 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.
