Haworth Creates International Sector

by Bruce Drummond | Jun 19, 2017
Frank Rexach, Haworth’s Vice President and General Manager in the Asia Pacific sector, has announced his decision to retire at the end of June, 2017. With this change, Haworth is creating an International Sector that will be led by Henning Figge, Vice President & General Manager.

“Frank’s leadership has been instrumental in developing Haworth Asia Pacific into a dynamic organisation, allowing us to support our client’s ever-evolving needs,” said Franco Bianchi, Haworth President & CEO. “In his 15 years with Haworth, Frank has led the organization to be an international thought leader in the Asia Pacific office furniture industry and has been personally instrumental in several very successful years of profitable growth. As he made the decision to retire, I thanked Frank for his continued efforts towards achieving our business goals and wish all the best for his personal future.”

As Rexach retires at the end of June 2017, Haworth is creating an International Sector. Both Asia-Pacific and European sectors have gone through significant changes in response to a continuously changing market environment. During strategic planning, Haworth realised alignment between these two sectors, both in terms of product and service needs. This change reflects the increasingly connected and highly knowledgeable customer environment around the globe.

Globally, Haworth improves workplaces with award-winning furniture, interior architecture and technology solutions to help customers achieve their business goals by supporting collaboration and innovation, as well as contributing to culture transformations. Research + design drive a deep understanding of agile workplace needs and are at the center of the company’s strategy. Haworth is committed to protecting and restoring the environment, creating economic value as well as supporting and strengthening its communities. Founded in 1948, Haworth remains family-owned and privately-held and serves markets in more than 120 countries through a global network of 650 dealers and 6,500 employees. The company had net sales of USD $1.94 billion in 2016.
