Binke resigns; Rauh named acting CEO at Kluft
September 6, 2017,
Rauh has been a long-time executive of The Flex Group and will add the acting chief executive officer duties to his role as head of the parent company’s international division. He led the Flex team that navigated the acquisition of Kluft, playing a key role in the integration, strategy development and relationships with key customers and vendors and suppliers.
Flex Group Chairman and CEO Rafael González said, “The Kluft and Aireloom brands have been growing very robustly in the U.S. and internationally, and we expect that pace to continue with the strong leadership team we have in place and based on the long-term relationships they have with customers and clients.
"We have begun a search for a new leader for the business but are already seeing the senior leadership team come together to continue to execute our business plan. I am grateful to Alain for assuming these additional duties on an acting basis and David for his work with us these past few years.”
Binke, a bedding veteran, was named chief executive officer in 2015 after the Flex Group completed its acquisition of the company.
