GERMANY: Laurence Roy has been named head of Güntner’s wholesale business line in Europe.

In her new role as strategic sales director wholesale, Laurence Roy reports directly to the Güntner Board

The autonomous wholesale business line has been integrated into Güntner’s company structure in order to meet the increasing requirements of an expanding market in a much more customer friendly manner. 

“Our aim with the new organisation is to strengthen our relationship with customers by improving service and shortening delivery times,” said Güntner managing director Martin Haug. “In future, we plan to continue producing heat exchangers for wholesale in our European plants.” 

In her new role as central contact partner, Laurence Roy will be supported by Max Haberlik (sales manager wholesale Germany, Austria, Switzerland), Raif Atalar (sales manager wholesale SEE) and three back office employees. The entire team has been a contact partner for wholesale for several years. 

Roy joined Güntner in 2015 as key account manager – wholesale in the Asia Pacific region. She was previously employed for 12 years by the Heatcraft Worldwide Refrigeration division of Lennox. After becoming Güntner’s sales manager – wholesale in 2016, Roy moved to regional manager for France in 2018.
