GUBI appoints new Chief Sales Officer
GUBI strengthens the management team as part of the company’s further internationalization; Bo Thuesen, former Head of Sales at Vitra, has been appointed Chief Sales Officer of GUBI A/S.
Over recent years, GUBI has experienced strong growth across markets, not least in the global export markets. In this connection, and with an ambition to continue to expand the global markets, GUBI has for a long time been looking for a Chief Sales Officer with a profile that understands internationalization and development of export markets in the high-end design and furniture segments.
Bo Thuesen has been brought on board, as GUBI sees a very strong match with his great international experience from the industry, especially from his recent position as Head of Sales for the Home Division at Vitra - one of the largest and most recognized brands in the international furniture industry. Prior to this, Bo was the Sales Director of one of the leading German furniture companies, Walter Knoll.
"With Bo joining the team, we add an exciting force to the company, one who has in-depth knowledge of the big DACH market (Germany, Austria, Switzerland), combined with an extensive industry experience and a strong network internationally," says COO Kenni Riise.
About the new challenges at GUBI, Bo Thuesen says:
"I see a very big potential at GUBI, which I am looking forward to developing together with the rest of the management team and the talented employees of GUBI. As a brand, there is no doubt that GUBI has a very special stand-alone factor and uniqueness, and I am excited to strengthen that even more in the future."
Bo Thuesen will join GUBI as Chief Sales Officer on October 1st, 2017 and will at the same time enter the management team.
