Management boards moving closer together

BLANC & FISCHER adapts leadership structure of the management holding company

Shorter distances, closer and leaner coordination, faster decisions: the new management board structure of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding brought to life in summer 2022 follows a clear idea. The major change: in addition to CEO Bernd Eckl and CFO Heiko Pott, the CEOs of the two largest operating business groups E.G.O. and BLANCO now also belong to the Group management board at the same time

Dr. Karlheinz Hörsting was previously a member of the management board of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding and also took over the vacant CEO position in the E.G.O.-Group as part of the restructuring. BLANCO CEO Frank Gfrörer joined the committee. “This reflects the importance of the two largest business groups,” says CEO Bernd Eckl. “We expect this new management board structure to bring the individual companies of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding closer, allowing us to leverage opportunities better and advance joint projects more quickly and consistently. We need to position the BLANC & FISCHER-Group so that we can respond to challenges as flexibly and consistently as possible. This also makes us more resilient, but requires close coordination between the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding and the operational business groups.”
