GEZE UK’s new managing director Kaz Spiewakowski has set out his plans to reinvigorate the company, promising a subtle change of approach designed to build on GEZE’s enviable reputation and maximise the experience of its highly knowledgeable staff.
“Our people, our products and our reputation are fantastic assets,” he enthused. “Despite challenging trading conditions, our year on year sales growth is proof that we are still leaders within this sector and we must build on these strengths as we move forward.
“But while I’m upbeat about our potential, it’s important that we make this change of leadership an opportunity to evolve. We must refresh our approach and embrace new challenges, with a renewed focus on enhancing customer service, improving operational delivery and maximising the skills of our staff.”
Previously managing director of Exidor for six years, Kaz began his career as an engineer, learning his trade at component and sub-assembly manufacturers within the motor, electronics and consumer goods industries. “Because of my engineering background, I am interested in the details of a business,” he added.
“This gives me a unique perspective which can help bring about real change within the business. Organisational changes designed to make our sales functions more effective will be followed by a review of processes and systems that deliver the projects with the aim of improving performance in these critical aspects of the business.”
At Dynacast International, Kaz began as commercial manager, progressing to European sales manager and then UK general manager, before joining Exidor as managing director, where he led the company for the last six years. He began at GEZE UK on 1 January 2013.
