LEESBURG, Va.—Rehau shuffled its Americas leadership team in the wake of regional CEO Christian Fabian transitioning to a new role.
Fabian, who has led the Americas region since 2012, will return to Germany and head a newly formed Technology and Performance global services division, beginning Jan. 1. At that time, the new leadership team of Rehau Americas will include Theo Haast as president and chief financial officer, Thomas Troeger in a newly created role of chief marketing officer, and Terry Barnaby as chief operations officer.
Rehau said Haast will report directly to William Christensen, CEO of the global Rehau group. He began his career with Deloitte in the Netherlands and the U.S. He then held senior finance positions with international industrial companies including Lafarge, Fusion UV Systems and Hereaus. He joined Rehau as CFO and became a member of the regional executive board in 2014.
Troeger, vice president of furniture solutions for Rehau Americas, will assume the added role of CMO on the executive board. In this capacity, he will take on responsibility for the company's product divisions, including sales, marketing and engineering.
He joined the firm in 2006 as an executive assistant, then progressed through sales and marketing roles in the company's industrial and furniture segments before assuming responsibility for the Furniture Solutions division in 2013.
Barnaby, who has been with the company for 33 years, will continue to serve on the regional executive board as COO.
