Logitech International has appointed Hanneke Faber as its new chief executive officer, effective December 1, 2023, and initially based at the company headquarters in Switzerland, before relocating to Silicon Valley next year.
“We are delighted to welcome Hanneke as our new chief executive officer,” said Wendy Becker, Logitech’s chairperson for the board. “Hanneke is an exceptional business executive with proven leadership experience at a global scale. She has driven growth and transformation across multi-billion dollar businesses at three of the world’s leading product companies: Unilever, Ahold Delhaize and Procter & Gamble. Throughout her career, she has focused on innovation across diverse portfolios, fostering a deep connection with end-users in both mature and emerging markets and is a world-class sustainability leader who shares Logitech’s values and mindset.
“Hanneke will continue to drive the innovation Logitech is known for, and advance the company’s unique culture, to unlock Logitech’s full potential for long-term growth and increased value for all our stakeholders. Her passion and strategic vision will lead Logitech into our next chapter.”
“I am deeply honoured to join Logitech,” added Faber. “It’s a well-loved global brand that stands for user-focused design, engineering and innovation with an enviable reputation in sustainability. I cannot think of a more exciting time to be a part of the company’s future growth. Emerging technologies expand opportunities across hybrid work, video conferencing, gaming and streaming for Logitech and our users. I look forward to joining this strong leadership team, partnering with talented employees and engaging with our valued customers around the world to take the company to new heights.”
Becker concluded: “I want to thank Guy Gecht for his strong leadership and guidance during his time as interim CEO. In the last few months, he has led the disciplined execution of strategic priorities, working closely with employees, customers and partners. He will continue as interim CEO until December 1, 2023, before resuming his board responsibilities, including leading the technology and innovation committee.”
