Beiersdorf announced Petra Rob will take over the role of vice president, corporate and brands communications, upon the departure of Thomas Schönen on April 30, 2012. Schönen is stepping down from the role to pursue an opportunity in a different industry.
Thomas B. Quaas, chairman of the board at Beiersdorf, commented, “Thomas Schönen has made a major contribution to the success of Beiersdorf and its brands with his exceptional commitment and outstanding work.

We wish him every success in the future.”
