Neue Alno sets the course for the future with new management team

Neue Alno GmbH announced today (15.1.20) that Managing Director Thomas Kresser is taking a planned retirement from the company after leading the restart of Neue Alno for the past two years. Since early 2018, the company has restarted production, launched market-leading new products and substantially grown its dealer network in Germany and internationally.
Thomas has handed over senior management responsibility to Jochen Braun (Finance and Production) and Michael Spadinger (Sales and Procurement) as joint managing directors who have already contributed significantly to the company’s realignment throughout 2019. The Advisory Board of Neue Alno GmbH congratulates both on their appointment as managing directors and looks forward to a continued excellent collaboration in the years ahead.

Jason Carley, portfolio manager for RiverRock European Opportunities Fund II (the 100% owner of Neue Alno GmbH) said:

“We would like to thank Thomas Kresser for his valuable support over the course of the restart of Neue Alno GmbH.
We hired Jochen Braun as an experienced managing director who successfully led companies through reorganisations and significant growth. Jochen has comprehensive experience in the areas of production and finance and will continue to drive improvements in production, controlling, IT and management infrastructure of the organisation.
Michael Spadinger has already led the overhaul of our product range and introduction of the Tailor and Space product lines. Michael has extensive expertise in the domestic and international kitchen industry and will continue to execute our strategic vision as Alno continues its development as a flexible, innovative, high-quality Germany kitchen manufacturer.
Both managing directors represent continuity and reliability. RiverRock as owner pursues a long term growth strategy with Neue Alno GmbH and is confident Jochen and Michael will lead the company forward to the next stage.”
