Recticel announces the departure of Olivier Chapelle as CEO and appoints Jan Vergote as new CEO
After the finalisation of the transformation of Recticel in a pure insulation player, the Board of Directors and Olivier Chapelle have agreed that after 13 years at the helm of Recticel, the timing was ideal to pass the torch to a new CEO, who would lead the next phase of expansion of the Company. Olivier Chapelle and the Board of Directors have aligned on a handover, to begin on 1 September 2023, with Jan Vergote who succeeds him. Jan Vergote will resign from all his operational functions at Baltisse Group.
Johnny Thijs, Chairman: "In the name of the Board of Directors, I wish to thank Olivier Chapelle wholeheartedly for having successfully transformed Recticel under difficult circumstances. The company can now fully focus on its next phase of expansion as a pure insulation player. The successor of Olivier, Jan Vergote, has accumulated a lot of experience as Managing Director and CEO in several European and international companies, active in the construction industry. He brings the experience needed to realize our ambitious growth targets.”
