POMPANO BEACH, Fla. — Roger Johansson, CEO and president of Dometic, has in joint understanding with the board of directors decided to leave his assignment. Juan Vargues, currently head of the Entrance Systems division at ASSA ABLOY, has been appointed as new CEO.
Roger Johansson will remain in his current role until the year-end.
“I would like to thank Roger for his five years with Dometic. Roger has achieved an outstanding transformation of the company, with the IPO in 2015 as an important milestone. Today, the company stands very strong and now enters the next phase,” says Fredrik Cappelen, chairman of the Board at Dometic.
He adds, “With Juan’s strong business experience and proved leadership, I and the board have found a very suitable leader for the next phase in the company’s development.”
Johansson states, “I am leaving Dometic after five intense years. Following an extensive transformation, the company now stands strong. I still have a lot of heart for the company, but now is a good moment for a new leader to continue Dometic’s fantastic journey ahead.”
He continues, “I have made this decision as I want to pursue a number of private projects before I decide to take on any new assignments.”
“I have accepted the offer to become the new CEO of Dometic with great humility. I am really looking forward to lead the company to the next level and continue the successful work that Roger and his team has initiated,” says Vargues.
