Uster Technologies has announced plans for a phased evolution in key senior management positions.

Progression to the next leadership generation will see Harold Hoke (vice-president, sales and service) and Walter Kiechl (the company’s chief officer in China), step back gradually, to foster a seamless transition over the next year.

After 37 successful years with USTER, Harold Hoke will be succeeded by Anson Xu and Andreas Tanner, under a new organizational structure. Anson Xu will head all the Chinese operations, while remaining as Head of Sales in China. Andreas Tanner will become Head of Sales for the rest of the world, as well as handling liaison with machinery manufacturers.

The new appointments will take effect from April 1, 2018. However, Harold Hoke will continue with USTER until at least March 2019, assisting the new appointees with the take-up. He will also remain a member of the company’s executive committee, as well as assuming full responsibility for other projects. On completion of these duties, Harold Hoke will enter his retirement.

Andreas Tanner is already well-known within USTER and the wider textile community. His experience, passion, determination and accountability, will assure strength, continuity and stability of the USTER business.

In making the changes, Uster Technologies has focused on advance planning, to ensure customers experience a smooth and efficient continuation of their relationship. Said CEO Thomas Nasiou: “We have taken the opportunity to have a fresh look at our organisation, to position ourselves for the future.”
