Lars Felderhoff becomes new CFO of the Gauselmann Group
(Espelkamp).- Change in the Management Board of the Eastern Westphalian-based Gauselmann Group: Lars Felderhoff, currently Commercial Director of adp Gauselmann GmbH, will take over the position of Chief Financial Officer on 1 July 2018. The 42-year-old succeeds Alexander Vleeming, who is leaving the internationally active group of companies at his own request after ten years with the company.
“We would like to thank Mr Vleeming for the successful years together and wish him all the best for the future, both professionally and personally. At the same time, we are pleased to welcome Mr Felderhoff to the Management Board. Mr Felderhoff, who gained his first experiences with the company as a trainee in 1997, is the best example that talented employees from the Gauselmann Group’s own ranks can climb the career ladder to the highest level of senior management,” says Paul Gauselmann, company founder and Management Board Chairman.
After training as a banker, studying business administration at Leuphana University Lüneburg and Växjö University in Sweden, and subsequently studying for an MBA at Manchester Business School, Lars Felderhoff joined Atronic Americas LLC, a former subsidiary of the Gauselmann Group, in 2000.
Between 2007 and 2011, Lars Felderhoff worked for GTECH (now IGT) and Metro Cash & Carry International GmbH, before returning to the Gauselmann Group in 2011 as Commercial Director of adp Gauselmann GmbH. To date, he has also assumed commercial responsibility for the entire Merkur business segment with over 40 operating companies in Germany and abroad. During his corporate career, the new Board member has not only worked in Germany, but also in the USA, Austria and Monaco.
“As Commercial Director at adp Gauselmann GmbH, Mr Felderhoff has already established – and proven – himself at senior management level of the Gauselmann Group in recent years. We are therefore confident that he will also master his new tasks as Chief Financial Officer in an exemplary manner and wish him every success in this new position,” says Armin Gauselmann, Director of Human Resources.
Born in Rahden, Lars Felderhoff is very familiar with the Altkreis Lübbecke district, the headquarters of the Gauselmann Group, and the importance of the company for the region of Eastern Westphalia. The 42-year-old is married and has four children together with his wife Hélène.
