Jul '13
The Board of Directors of Charles Vögele Holding AG has appointed Matthias Wunderlin (39) as its new Chief Sales Officer (CSO). As a Member of Group Management he will be responsible from 1 November 2013 for managing all country organizations and for Charles Vögele Group’s marketing.

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. Matthias Wunderlin’s main job was to return the furniture stores to profitable growth, which he managed to do within two years. Prior to that he worked for eight years at

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.
