Strategy and leadership change at Würth

On September 12th, we reported that Simon Sanfilippo, the managing director of the Italian purchasing association Elex Italia.......

will be engaged by Würth early 2019, and also that Ryszard D'Antoni of the Polish purchasing association SHE, had been employed at Würth for over a year.

Now Würth's further strategy seems to be clear: D'Antoni, who turns 65 next  September, will then go into well-deserved retirement. His successor will be Simon Sanfilippo, who will mainly focus on cooperation with manufacturers at European level.

This move will not make things easier for the ailing companies Rexel and Sonepar (see electro-insider of 14. September) and Würth is in the process of establishing itself further as an international marketing company.
