Harald Küper (53) has taken over as Head of Product Management at Kesseböhmer GmbH in Bad Essen on April 1, 2022. He brings with him extensive experience from the areas of sales and product management as well as sound knowledge in the use of design software for furniture and interior design. For almost 25 years, Harald Küper held significant positions, primarily for companies in the furniture fittings industry.
Harald Küper comes from Grass GmbH, Höchst/Austria, where he was most recently Head of Global Product Management at the Reinheim production site, with worldwide responsibility for product range development, expansion and maintenance of hinge and flap systems. The trained carpenter and qualified wood engineer started his career in the industry in 1998 in software support and sales at Imos AG, Herford. This was followed by positions as Business Support and Category Manager at Hettich FurnTech in Vlotho and as International Product Manager at Franz Schneider Brakel (FSB), before Küper moved to Grass in 2013 as Global Product Manager for hinge and flap systems.
At Kesseböhmer, Harald Küper will develop product strategies for furniture hardware systems. "I am very pleased to take on this important position with a strong brand. Kesseböhmer has established itself as a market leader. It will be interesting to shape the future direction here as part of the team. For me, this includes driving innovation not only in the product area," says the manager, looking forward to his new challenge. Thomas Laaff, his predecessor in this position, left the company at his own request in May 2021.
