CHG-MERIDIAN AG appointed Daniel Welzer to the board of management as chief sales officer, beginning Jan. 1. Welzer will succeed Frank Kottmann, who served on the board of management for 10 years and will step down on Dec. 31.
“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,” Jürgen Mossakowski, chairman of the supervisory board of CHG-MERIDIAN, said. “He introduced many new sales-related functions in this area, permanently changing them along the way and ensuring they are solution-oriented.”
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 has been the chief representative of sales since Oct. 2021, where he was responsible for key sales units in Europe and overseas in his position as sales director international. Before joining CHG-MERIDIAN AG, Welzer held a sales management role at Wüstenrot & Württembergische AG, a listed financial services company. In that role he successfully managed sales units, digitalization initiatives, and various group business units, including brandpool GmbH and Adam Riese GmbH.
“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.
As of Jan. 1 Welzer will serve as one of the four members of the international CHG-MERIDIAN Group’s senior leadership team, the board of management, alongside Wagner, chairman of the board of management, Ulrich Bergmann, chief financial officer and Oliver Schorer, chief product officer, who is responsible for products and services.
