Uster Technologies, a high-technology instrument developer of products for quality measurement and certification of textiles, has announced plans for a phased evolution in key senior management positions. Harold Hoke, vice-president, sales and service, and Walter Kiechl, the chief officer in China, will step back gradually for a seamless transition in 2018.

After 37 successful years with Uster, Harold Hoke will be succeeded by Anson Xu and Andreas Tanner, under a new organisational structure. Anson Xu will head all the Chinese operations, while remaining as head of sales in China. Andreas Tanner will become Executive Vice President Sales and Service for the rest of the world, as well as handling liaison with machinery manufacturers.

The new appointments will take effect from April 1, 2018. However, Harold Hoke will continue with Uster until at least March 2019, assisting the new appointees with the take-up. He will also remain a member of the company’s executive committee, as well as assuming full responsibility for other projects. On completion of these duties, Harold Hoke will enter his retirement.

Andreas Tanner is already well-known within Uster and the wider textile community. His experience, passion, determination and accountability, will assure strength, continuity and stability of the Uster business.

In making the changes, Uster Technologies has focused on advance planning, to ensure customers experience a smooth and efficient continuation of their relationship.

CEO of the company Thomas Nasiou said, “We have taken the opportunity to have a fresh look at our organisation, to position ourselves for the future. By initiating an early search for internal and external candidates, we are confident we have identified the right successors, as well as creating a streamlined transition plan.” (GK)
