New Bavaria CEO
Michael Müller has been appointed Bavaria CEO, responsible for the activities of the entire group, including Bavaria Yachtbau GmbH in Germany and Nautitech Catamarans SAS in France.
The move follows on from a three-month tenure for Michael as MD for sales and marketing for the group. This position was previously vacant.
“In the few weeks with Michael Müller on board we have learned how effective he is and how well he has been received by employees and dealers,” said Dr Ralph Kudla of CMP Capital Management Partners, representing and advising the investing equity fund and
chief restructuring officer. “This is why we have asked him to take on the role of CEO.”
Michael added: “I bring in my experience working for leading brands and I intend to reinforce the position of Bavaria Yachts as a quality manufacturer of modern sailing and motor yachts.”
“At the moment our whole team is focussed on preparing for the 2019 delivery season. We will meet our quality pledge as well as our promised delivery dates, so that the boats on order get into the water for the spring.”
And he said technological improvements are being incorporated into Bavaria’s production lines.
To continue this, the management team has been strengthened by the addition of two product managers: Pascal Kuhn for sailing yachts and Siep Keizer for motor yachts.
Both will report to Erik Appel, the MD responsible for production.
The Bavaria Yachts Group currently employs 800 people with 550 permanent employees Giebelstadt, as well as around 50 temporary employees. Nautitech Catamarans SAS employs 250 people in Rochefort in France.
