Christopher and Stephen Schroeter will take over the family business at Napoleon as co-CEOs.
The newly-appointed duo are the sons of Napoleon co-founders Wolfgang Schroeter, CEO, and Ingrid Schroeter, CFO.
Christopher and Stephen have worked at the company for 18 and 15 years, respectively. Most recently, Christopher served as senior vice president of operations, research and development, while Stephen held the title of senior vice president of sales, marketing and administration.
“This is an exciting milestone in our succession plan with a focus on the future, helping strengthen Napoleon’s long-term strategic goals,” Wolfgang said.
The founders plan to remain active in the company on “special projects” and through the company’s advisory board. As co-CEOs, the sons will work with the company’s president, Ron McArthur. www.napoleon.com
