Laurent Mulley taking over as Managing Director – Urs Endress to assume new tasks within the Group
After 20 years at the helm of Endress+Hauser France, Urs Endress will hand over leadership on 1 October 2016. Stepping in as new Managing Director is Laurent Mulley, previously Director of Sales for the French operation.
The leadership change has been long in the making. Laurent Mulley (born 1968) joined Endress+Hauser France as Director of Sales in 2012. Prior to that, he held the same position at sensor manufacturer Sick. During his time at Endress+Hauser France, Laurent Mulley has made important contributions through efficient structures and a stronger industry orientation. The new Managing Director holds degrees in physics and measurement technology, as well as an MBA.
63-year-old Urs Endress (born 1953) will remain close to Endress+Hauser as more than a shareholder. He will continue to represent the company with key customers. He also plans to internationalize the cross-border training and education initiative started by his late father, company founder Dr Georg H Endress. The aim is to give apprentices the opportunity to acquire work experience on different continents.
Urs Endress joined the family-owned company in 1982 after earning a degree in mechanical engineering. After ten years with flow measurement specialist Endress+Hauser Flowtec in Switzerland and four years in international sales with focus on Asia, he has overseen the successful development and expansion of the French sales center since 1996.
Endress+Hauser France has more than 250 employees at its headquarters in Huningue, as well as at offices in Paris, Bordeaux and Lyon. Apart from the domestic market, Endress+Hauser France also manages the Group’s business in French-speaking Africa.
