Blanco Names Successor To Waldi In 2012

The Blanco CS Group has named Friedrich Schock co-CEO of Blanco CS GmbH + Co KG. In mid-2012, Schock will also assume the title of chairman of the managing board. He will succeed Rolf Waldi, who plans to retire after more than 20 years with the Blanco Group.

Blanco CS (Customized Solutions), which makes foodservice equipment, is affiliated with the household sink and kitchen fittings specialist Blanco.

In the announcement, Schock said, “As the future chairman of Blanco CS, it is my primary objective to sustain the positive corporate culture, promote internationalization and further growth potential. In doing so, being located in (Oberderdingen,) Germany will play a decisive role. My particular concern is continuing to increase the prominence of the strong Blanco brand."
