Jörg Herrmann becomes new CEO of the Holiday Home Division
The Hotelplan Group subsidiary and holiday home specialist Holiday Home Division (HHD) is getting a new head – Jörg Herrmann takes over the CEO position effective today, 8 April 2019. This step coincides with a realignment of the management team.
Jörg Herrmann is taking over as CEO at the helm of the Holiday Home Division with the brands Interhome and Inter Chalet as of today, 8 April 2019. He succeeds Thomas Stirnimann, CEO Hotelplan Group, who has been in charge of the HHD in an interim capacity for the past one and a half years. Michael Figlestahler, Head of Sales & Marketing HHD, has been appointed deputy CEO HHD. In the course of this restructuring, Jytte Toft, until now deputy CEO HHD and Managing Director Inter Chalet, has decided to leave the company with immediate effect.
Peter Kranz, CIO HHD, has also opted to leave the company. He will be finalizing the joint Interhome and Inter Chalet booking system (Focus) at the beginning of June 2019 and leaves the Holiday Home Division at the end of June to take up a new role outside the company. His responsibilities will be divided among various departments. As until now, the third management team member, Marcello Bologna, continues to hold the CFO position in the Holiday Home Division.
The organization HHD GmbH (formerly Inter Chalet Ferienhaus-Gesellschaft mbH) in Freiburg im Breisgau will be managed effective immediately in a joint capacity by Jörg Herrmann and Michael Figlestahler.
"We would like to extend to Jytte Toft our most sincere thanks for her over 30 years of service in various roles at Inter Chalet and the HHD. Thanks to her commitment, Inter Chalet and Interhome were able to expand and consolidate their leading position in Germany. She has also successfully headed Inter Chalet as Managing Director for the past six years. We would also like to sincerely thank Peter Kranz for his work as CIO Inter Chalet over the past six years and, above all, for implementing Focus, the key IT project of recent years. We wish them both all the best in their future endeavours," says Thomas Stirnimann, CEO Hotelplan Group. "We also wish Jörg Herrmann and the entire HHD team much satisfaction and success in shaping the future of the Holiday Home Division. We are confident that they will continue to successfully serve and support our customers and partners in the holiday home sector," he adds.
