Quartz and porcelain surface specialist Caesarstone has announced the departure of Amir Reske, MD of the brand in the UK and EMEA, after seven years.
Reske joined Caesarstone in July 2016 to set up the UK operation, which he built from scratch. It now has a growing nationwide business and three distribution centres – including one in Ireland which opened last month and.
Commenting on his departure, Reske said: “Caesarstone gave me an opportunity to build a business from the ground up, set and implement the growth strategy and promote it as a leading UK brand and for that, I will always be grateful. I have been privileged to work with a brilliant team some of whom started with me at the very beginning and are still employed by Caesarstone, and I am very proud of the culture that we created within the organisation.
“Caesarstone now holds a very strong position in the UK market and while there is yet more to be done, the time has come to pass the reins on to someone else. For the past seven years, I have worked away from my home country, and it is now time to leave my Caesarstone work family and return home to my own. With a strong pipeline of projects, the excellent reputation and brand awareness and a dedicated team, the future for Caesarstone in the UK looks very bright. I will always cherish my time in the UK, and I will be watching as Caesarstone continues its journey.”
Reske leaves Caesarstone at the end of August to take on a CEO role in his native Israel. The brand has said that his replacement will be announced in due course.
