Neil Bailey to Lead Poggenpohl U.S. and Canada

December 11, 2012

Poggenpohl has appointed Neil Bailey as president of Poggenpohl U.S. and Canada.

Most recently, Bailey was managing director for Poggenpohl Group UK and Ireland, where he was responsible for managing the retail operations, dealer network and multi-unit projects division. Through acquisition and development, Bailey grew a network of eight corporate-owned studios that are currently Poggenpohl's most successful in the world. His experience in the kitchen furniture industry spans more than 25 years, and he has worked within Nobia (Poggenpohl’s parent company based in Stockholm, Sweden) for over 10 years.

Bailey replaces Ted Chappell, who has decided to pursue an opportunity outside the kitchen cabinetry industry. Bailey will be succeeded by Simon Richmond, who was promoted to managing director, from his current role as sales & operations director for Poggenpohl UK.

"These appointments are in crucial markets for Poggenpohl,” said Lars Voelkel, managing director of Poggenpohl Mobelwerke GmbH. “Both Neil Bailey and Simon Richmond have been key players in the success of Poggenpohl’s UK operation. Their expertise in the luxury kitchen segment and proven leadership talent are valued assets to our business. We are proud to promote from within the organization, and I am convinced they will be equally successful in their respective new roles."
