Change of Executive Board member at Nestlé Germany: Alexander von Maillot succeeds Marc-Aurel Boersch

The company has proposed to the Supervisory Board of Nestlé Deutschland AG to remove Marc-Aurel Boersch from the position of Chief Executive Officer effective February 28, 2023. Marco Settembri, responsible for Zone Europe at Nestlé, said, "We have a lot of respect for his decision, but regret it very much. Under Marc-Aurel Boersch's leadership, Nestlé Germany has evolved into a more culturally modern, innovatively growing and financially successful company. I thank him for his high level of commitment and wish him and his family all the best for the future."

His successor and new Nestlé Germany CEO will be Alexander von Maillot (51), currently Senior Vice President in the Strategic Business Unit responsible for the global confectionery and ice cream business. It will be proposed to the Supervisory Board that von Maillot be appointed as a member of the Executive Board and CEO from March 1, 2023.

Von Maillot began his Nestlé career in 1996 in Germany in sales and marketing before moving to the Czech market as Business Manager Beverages in 2006. In 2007, he assumed the role of Business Executive Manager Beverages there. In 2010, he moved to France as Business Executive Manager Confectionery, and in 2013 he was appointed Market Head Belgilux (Belgium and Luxembourg), where he achieved very good business results. In 2018, Alexander was promoted by Maillot to his current position in Vevey, Switzerland.

Under his leadership and through close collaboration across zones, markets and R&D, global brands such as KitKat expanded into new segments, and the confectionery category, which is important to the company, was revitalized. Von Maillot is also a strong driver of the Nestlé Income Accelerator, a program that combats child labor risks and works to improve living conditions for cocoa farmers in Côte d'Ivoire as well as Ghana. "I am very pleased that with Alexander von Maillot we were able to win a very experienced colleague with strong business expertise for the German market, congratulate him on his new assignment and wish him every success," says Settembri.
