Effective November 1, 2022, Swiss national Roland Schneider will take on new challenges as incoming CEO of CENIT Switzerland AG. In tandem with outgoing CEO Peter Abt, he will head CENIT’s Swiss subsidiary, based in Effretikon, until the end of 2022 and then succeed Mr. Abt, who is retiring.
Roland Schneider has more than 30 years of experience as a financial analyst and CFO of various internationally active enterprises. Most recently, he acted as CFO of Romay AG in Oberkulm, and previously in leadership positions at Constellation Group (Canada) as well as Bally AG and Schindler AG.
In commenting on the management change, Peter Schneck, CEO of CENIT, says that “in Roland Schneider, we have gained a highly experienced colleague with excellent business connections in Switzerland – one who will drive our growth strategy forward across all business units of CENIT Switzerland AG. In particular, his experience in the mergers & acquisitions sphere will benefit the inorganic growth of our Swiss subsidiary.”
Axelle Mazé, CENIT CFO, applauds the decision: “Thanks to his outstanding contacts with businesses across Switzerland, Roland Schneider will be able to fully exploit the high potential for organic growth which CENIT sees in Switzerland. I look forward to close and successful collaboration with him.”
