Webgears Group, the leading international provider of content commerce solutions, announces the appointment of Charlotte Lumbroso-Baumgartner as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with effect from on 1 January 2024. She succeeds the founder, Alexander Bitsche, who is moving to the Advisory Board.
With a new CEO, Webgears Group is opening a new chapter in its corporate history.
Under the leadership of founder Alexander Bitsche, the company has made a name for itself especially in the Anglo-Saxon world and cooperates with well-known media companies such as BILD, CNET and The Sun. After thirteen successful years at the helm of the Webgears Group, Alexander Bitsche has decided to move to the Advisory Board. There, he will focus on strategic issues across the group in the future while limiting involvement to key operational decisions.
Charlotte Lumbroso-Baumgartner brings years of experience in digital marketing, media and content commerce to further drive Webgears’ growth. From 2014 to 2019, she was a key contributor to double-digit organic and inorganic growth as Corporate Development and Strategy Director at Awin, successfully driving geographic expansion, M&A and strategic partnerships. She then moved to Axel Springer, where she held various management positions in the group’s international business and became a member of the Awin’s Supervisory Board.
“I am delighted to welcome Charlotte to the team as our new CEO. With her in-depth industry knowledge and proven leadership skills, she is the ideal person to put us in the best possible position for the future.” – Alexander Bitsche
“Since its inception and under Alexander’s leadership, Webgears has become one of the leading content commerce solutions providers in the industry. Their extremely high-quality product and highly experienced team of industry experts make Webgears the perfect trusted partner for media companies. I am honored to accept Alexander’s invitation to take on the challenge of succeeding him as CEO, and I look forward to leading Webgears into a new phase of growth.” – Charlotte Lumbroso-Baumgartner
With the change in management, Charlotte Lumbroso-Baumgartner will also take over the chairmanship of the Management Board from 1 January 2024. Christoph von Bülow, who has been instrumental in driving international expansion over the past four years together with Alexander Bitsche, will remain Managing Director and will continue to be responsible for Sales, Partners and Operations under Lumbroso-Baumgartner.
