Gerald Vogt is
appointed as the new CEO of Stäubli Group. Vogt will take over as CEO from
retiring Rolf Strebel on 1, January, 2021. Vogt was previously responsible for
the global business of the Robotics Division, which will be headed by Christophe
Coulongeat on 1, January, 2021.

Gerald Vogt, an
experienced manager from within the company’s own ranks, will take over the
management of the diversified and growing family-owned company. The 50-year-old
Franco-German engineer and business economist has been responsible for the
global Robotics business as Group Division Manager since mid-2016 and is
already a member of the Group Management.

When he joined Stäubli
almost 20 years ago, Gerald Vogt initially moved from the development and
production site in Faverges, France, to the US for several years. As Division
Manager he significantly expanded business for Stäubli Robotics North America.
Afterwards he returned to Faverges as Head of Development before taking over
responsibility for the German business as Head of Stäubli Robotics in Bayreuth.

To ensure a smooth
transition and prepare for his future tasks as CEO, the Stäubli Board of
Directors nominated Gerald Vogt as the designated successor to Rolf Strebel at
the beginning of 2020. Since then, Gerald Vogt has accompanied the current CEO
and is responsible for the introduction and implementation of the new business
strategy for Stäubli until 2030.

“We are delighted
to have found in Gerald Vogt a forward-looking manager with an extensive
international experience and a clear entrepreneurial spirit who is already very
well connected within the Group. He has our full confidence to further advance
the business of the entire Stäubli Group worldwide,” said Yves Serra,
Chairman of the Board of Directors.

“On behalf of the
entire Board of Directors and the Stäubli family, I would like to take this
opportunity to thank Rolf Strebel for more than 40 years of dedication to
Stäubli and his outstanding work as CEO of the Stäubli Group over the past 14
years. We wish him all the best for the time ahead,” added Serra.

Christophe Coulongeat,
the new global responsibility for the Robotics Division, has been Deputy
Division Manager since 2018 and previously gathered extensive experience in the
packaging and automation industry in France, Austria, the United Arab Emirates
and Switzerland.

With this succession
in management, Stäubli is setting the course to consistently pursue its growth
and further expand its market position worldwide, especially in North America
and Asia.
