“We are grateful for Daniel Potok’s significant contributions to STARK Group and understand his wish to explore a new career path after six years with our Group. His contributions include, in particular, the divestment of STARK Group from Ferguson Plc. and the subsequent development of our STARK Group Strategy, performance management and an acquisition strategy that include more than 25 acquisitions in five years. He is a high-quality leader who brings courage, strong business acumen and independent thinking to the table,” says Søren P. Olesen.
Daniel Potok will continue working for STARK Group on selected transformative projects until the year-end of 2022. He will hand over the position as Group CSO and member of STARK Group’s Executive Committee to Matias Lönneker as of 1 September 2022.
STARK Group’s strategy and M&A efforts have, until now, resided under the Group CSO role. That holds for Strategy and the Group Strategy team, while the responsibility for M&A and the Group M&A team will transfer to Group CFO Sisse Fjelsted Rasmussen.
Britta K. Stenholt takes the role of chairman for Electro Energy.
