Grohe appoints new general manager for UK

Global bathroom brand Grohe has announced the appointment of Simon Andersen as its new general manager for the UK, effective from September 1.

Andersen replaces Ina Sielemann in this role as she moves to Grohe’s German headquarters to become head of projects for central Europe.

Jonas Brennwald, deputy chief executive of Grohe in Germany and chief executive of Lixil Water Technology, EMENA [Europe, Middle East and North Africa] – himself only recently appointed to that role during the raft of management changes in the wake of the resignation of former CEO Michael Rauterkus earlier this month – said of the appointment: “I am very pleased to announce Simon Andersen as the new general manager of Grohe UK.

“Simon has been working for Grohe for over 10 years and has shown great leadership lately as marketing director for north and east Europe. With his strong background at Grohe, we are confident that Simon Andersen will continue to drive the business for Grohe UK successfully.”

Andersen said of his new role: “I am thrilled to be taking on this new challenge of heading up the UK region. The UK continues to be an influential, ever-growing market for Grohe. I look forward to working with my new colleagues, partners and customers to help further strengthen the success of the business.”
