The European division of Office Depot has revealed two new senior appointments.
The company, which has undergone a period of transition in recent months following its acquisition by AURELIUS Equity Opportunities at the beginning of 2017, has revealed that it is “back on track” and has made new senior management appointments. As Office Times reports, the company has also embraced a “renewed business strategy”, focusing on office services, solutions and ecommerce.
Udo Heskamp, a former CFO and Managing Director of Nidec Secop has been named as Office Depot Europe’s new CFO, while Patrick Dittli is assuming the mantle of COO. He brings with him “strong experience from a number of larger international companies” including Nestle and METRO AG.
Neil Maslen, CEO and CSO of contract at Office Depot, said: “I am very pleased to announce that Office Depot is well on the road to recovery, with a new, experienced management team and a relentless drive to put our customers at the heart of everything we do.
“Last year saw a period of stabilisation, as we worked closely with AURELIUS to successfully bring our business back on track. This year we are excited to be seeing the results of this stabilisation, with growth once again on the agenda, operating as one company with two great brands.”
