Marco Peter will become CEO of Swiss chocolatier and confectionery company Lindt & Sprüngli next year following the retirement of Kamillo Kitzmantel.
Kitzmantel, who has been with Lindt & Sprüngli for 23 years, will leave the group by end of December. As of 1 January 2018, his CEO duties will be assigned to Marco Peter, who has been with the company since the beginning of 2014. He currently serves as country manager of Lindt’s Italian subsidiary Caffarel.
The duties as group management member will be handed over to other members of the group management.
Dr Dieter Weisskopf, CEO of the Lindt & Sprüngli Group, says, “On behalf of the board of directors, the group management and all employees I would like to take the opportunity to thank Kamillo Kitzmantel for his dedicated, strong commitment and outstanding contributions for the success of the company during all these years and wish him all the best for the future.”
