BDR Thermea Group, Baxi’s parent company, announced the appointment of Tjarko Bouman as its new CEO. Tjarko will join BDR Thermea Group from 1 February 2024 as successor to Bertrand Schmitt, who is stepping down, as announced earlier this week.

Tjarko is skilled in business transformation, as well as having digital skills in developing customer value-propositions.”

Tjarko added: “I’m looking forward to joining BDR Thermea Group, building on Bertrand’s legacy, bringing my own experience and skills to the company, and cooperating with the teams across the globe as BDR Thermea moves forward to further strengthen its position in the energy transition.”
