Marcus Sander

In the next steps toward a new structure, officials for Roto Group announced several shifts lately, including the appointment of Marcus Sander to the role of Chairperson of the board of directors for Roto Frank Window and Door Technology GmbH. The company announced its intent to restructure at the end of 2018, which officials say is taking shape as planned. A resulting separation into a non-operative holding company and three independent divisions is slated for completion by May 1, 2019.

An external candidate, Sander brings both management and international expertise to the position, officials say. He most recently served as president and chief executive officer (CEO) for the VAG Group, a global supplier of valves and hydrants for the water industry.

Sander began his international career at the Japanese corporation Mitsui and Co., before holding management positions at globally operating companies in the investment goods industry. That experience, Roto’s CEO Dr. Eckhard Keill says, meets the position’s exact requirements. In the meantime, Keill will retire as head of division, a role he currently shares, and will concentrate on his work as the sole Chairperson for Roto Frank Holding AG. Michael Stangier, the former chief financial officer of Roto Frank AG, will continue to provide his expertise to the position of commercial window and door technology managing director, officials say.

Sander says he is looking forward to taking on a “really exciting challenge” for the construction supplier. He says he is particularly impressed by the brand’s systematic focus on customer benefits.

“I can fully identify with this,” Sander says. “This is why my aim is to actively impact this strategy and make it even more successful.”
