The 39 year-old Swiss has been in charge of the Micasa furniture chain for five years and for the last year has also managed the Migros Group’s Do It & Garden outlets.

McKinsey & Company in Zurich as a consultant, managing international retail projects in Switzerland and abroad. Matthias Wunderlin graduated in economics from Zurich University.
Hans Ziegler, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Charles Vögele Holding AG said: “Matthias Wunderlin is a proven retail professional and we are very pleased that Charles Vögele has been able to recruit him.” The search for a Chief Purchasing Officer to complete Group Management is running in parallel.
