CHG-MERIDIAN Appoints Welzer Chief Sales Officer

CHG-MERIDIAN appointed Daniel Welzer to its board of management in the role of chief sales officer on Jan. 1. Welzer succeeded Frank Kottmann, who stepped down after 10 years of service.

“We would like to express our sincere thanks to Frank Kottmann, who has played a crucial part in driving forward key sales topics during his time on the board of management, particularly in establishing solutions as the core of our successful sales business. He introduced many new sales-related functions in this area, permanently changing them along the way and ensuring they are solution-oriented,” Jürgen Mossakowski, chairman of the supervisory board of CHG-MERIDIAN, said. “We have now gained another highly experienced executive with an international profile for the role of chief sales officer. Daniel Welzer is a great addition to our board of management and will provide new impetus for our continuing success.”

Welzer was appointed chief representative of sales in October of 2021 and was responsible for key sales units in Europe and overseas in his position as sales director international.

Before joining CHG-MERIDIAN, Welzer held a sales management role at Wüstenrot & Württembergische, a listed financial services company. In that role, which he held as a member of the management board and a managing director, he managed sales units, digitalization initiatives and various group business units, including brandpool and Adam Riese. Prior to his time at Wüstenrot & Württembergische, he held international sales and senior management positions for the Bertelsmann Group, including at Arvato and Prinovis, and worked in customer relationship management and analytics at Teradata.

“His extensive experience in managing sales teams and digital sales processes will help us to continue to successfully generate further growth and transform the company,” Dr. Mathias Wagner, chairman of the board of management of CHG-MERIDIAN, said.

Welzer will serve as one of the four members of CHG-MERIDIAN’s senior leadership team and board of management alongside Wagner (CEO), Ulrich Bergmann (CFO) and Oliver Schorer (chief product officer).
