Fluidra’s Board of Directors has decided to recruit Esther Berrozpe Galindo to the governing body of the leading group in the pool and wellness equipment business to replace Juan Ignacio Acha-Orbea Echeverría.
The appointment of the director, who up to a few months ago was President for Europe, Middle East and Africa of the Whirlpool Corporation and the Executive Vice President of the company, a global leader in the large home appliances sector, will become effective on 6 September.
With a degree in Economics and Business Administration from the University of Deusto in San Sebastián, she has led the company’s integration and transformation process for the past four years following the acquisition of Indesit Company by Whirlpool in 2014.
Prior to that, she had worked for more than two decades in consumer goods companies, where she held positions of responsibility both in Europe and the United States.
Through her recruitment, which will have to be ratified at the next AGM, she will bring her long-standing experience in talent and change culture management, and in mergers and acquisitions to the Board.
