BSH Hausgeräte GmbH has named Uwe Raschke, pictured, as its new CEO, following on from Karsten Ottenberg stepping down from his position at the end of June for “personal reasons” after six years in the role, according to the company.

Raschke will resign from his post of chairman of the supervisory board of BSH, but will remain a member of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH – BSH’s parent company – as chairman, making him responsible for Bosch’s consumer goods division.

BSH’s CFO Johannes Närger has also retired from his role, with chief markets officer Matthias Ginthum named as his temporary successor whilst the company searches for a permanent replacement.

“Over the past six years, we have successfully turned BSH into a consumer-centered company whose smart combinations of innovative hardware, software, and services improve people’s quality of life worldwide,” said Ottenberg.

“I am leaving the company for personal reasons and with the peace of mind that BSH is excellently positioned to go from strength to strength in the future.”

Stefan Asenkerschbaumer, who is deputy chairman of Robert Bosch GmbH’s management board and new BSH supervisory board chairman, added: “We would like to thank Karsten Ottenberg and Johannes Närger for their many years of dedication and valuable work in the service of BSH.

“Karsten Ottenberg made a significant contribution to BSH’s strategy of digitalization and greater regional responsibility. And, for more than ten years, Johannes Närger did great work as the CFO of BSH. We wish him the very best for his retirement and the future.

“In the shape of Uwe Raschke, BSH will be led by a Bosch executive with international experience and proven expertise in the consumer goods field. He will be an important source of inspiration for taking the company forward.”
