The Supervisory Board of Faber-Castell AG has come to a decision concerning the successor to Count Anton-Wolfgang von Faber-Castell, CEO, who passed away last year. Daniel Rogger will be appointed as CEO of Faber-Castell AG with effect from June 1, 2017. Last year the Supervisory Board and the Faber-Castell family resolved, for the first time, to fill the vacancy of the family-run company with an external manager.
Daniel Rogger (49) is a native of Switzerland and studied business administration at the University of St. Gallen. He held various senior positions including at the Swatch Group watch manufacturer and the Richemont Group with its global operations. Most recently he was CEO for the family-owned Silhouette International Schmied AG, and responsible for the worldwide business of the Austrian branded eyewear manufacturer.
Countess Mary von Faber-Castell, who acted as Speaker of the Management Board in the interim phase, is to be appointed to the Supervisory Board later this year. Until she is formally appointed, she will remain responsible for the cosmetics division on the company’s Management Board. Further Board members are Dr. Hans-Kurt von Werder (Technology) and Rolf Schifferens (Sales Europe/North America).
