The executive management change took place on March 1, 2022.

Effective March 1, Francis Cholley was named managing director for warm edge manufacturer SWISSPACER, part of the Saint-Gobain group. Cholley succeeds Victoria Renz-Kiefel, who assumed the role of director systems and solutions at Saint-Gobain Germany.

Renz-Kiefel took over management of SWISSPACER in spring 2020, steering the company through the coronavirus crisis and laying the foundations for many important transformations, officials said. “Working together as a team, we have been able to initiate many things to put the company on a sound footing for the future, such as our new CRM or the development of the sustainability strategy,” said Renz-Kiefel. In her new role at Saint-Gobain, she will promote cross-brand collaboration in consulting for investors, architects and planners.

Cholley, who has been with Saint-Gobain for 28 years, worked in various positions and organizations, most recently in the region of Asia. He recently served at SageGlass, a specialist for electrochromic glazing. In his first few weeks, he will manage SWISSPACER together with Renz-Kiefel to ensure a smooth transition.
