Summa Appoints New Managing Director

Geert Pierloot started his career at Summa in 1994 as Product Engineer and has managed different departments (product management, sales, marketing and R&D) since then. He also runs Summa’s Laser Division in Nottingham UK as General Manager since the acquisition in 2018. He has been appointed to managing director, effective 1 October.

Erwin Vandousselaere, current CEO, is appointed as Executive Chairman of the Board since Ergon Capital and the Management acquired the company from Gimv. While remaining the Group CEO, Vandousselaere will further focus on the strategic projects within the Summa Group, while continuing to play an active role in the development of Summa.

With his background and experience, Pierloot is ready to take up the next challenge in his career, ‘I want to thank Vandousselaere and the Board of Directors on giving me this great opportunity. I am looking forward to take on this position and lead our driven team as we continue to grow the company’, said Pierloot.

Vandousselaere added, ‘With the appointment of Pierloot to Managing Director, we are confident this is the right decision going forward. Pierloot carries a Summa-DNA with him and has provided crucial added value to the company for many years. He is, therefore, the right person to lead the day-to-day operational business and management of the group together with a strengthened management team.’
