Silhouette International has named Thomas Windischbauer and Daniel Rogger as new members of the executive board. The owners of the company, Klaus and Arnold Schmied, are leaving the operational business after working on the executive board for 15 years.

The two Schmieds are now joining the company's supervisory board to represent the interests of the family that owns the Austrian company.

Windischbauer, who joined the executive board last Sept. 1, is responsible for production, technology, logistics and administration, which were previously taken care of by Klaus Schmied. Rogger, who assumed his post as member of the executive board on Dec. 1, is responsible for product development, brand management, sales and human resources, succeeding Arnold Schmied.

Windischbauer, who has know-how in the areas of supply-chain management, process and project management, has worked at Silhouette for 11 years, the last two years as chief information officer. Rogger, who joined the company in December, previously worked for over 16 years in the watch industry, lately as international director at A. Lange & Söhne.

Silhouette employs 1,500 people at its headquarters in Switzerland and its 13 subsidiaries worldwide, recording annual sales of around €160 million with an export rate of 95 percent.
