2019: Raffael Reinhold has been named CEO of Office Depot Europe. He succeeded Neil Maslen at the beginning of April – Maslen had been in the top job at the reseller for only 15 months.
Reinhold, an operating partner at parent company Aurelius, now combines the CEO position with his previous role of Chief Sales Officer for the Viking Direct channel. He took over that role in September 2018 – initially on an interim basis – following Oliver Klinck’s departure.
Before joining Aurelius in early 2017, Reinhold held senior management positions at retail and mail order operator KarstadtQuelle, and travel company Thomas Cook, both of which were owned/part-owned by what became now defunct entity Arcandor.
Reinhold is tasked with leading Depot Europe through its continued transformation, with a “strong focus on further growth, customer experience, e-commerce and technology”.
