Dometic President and CEO Roger Johansson has in a joint understanding with the company’s board of directors decided to leave his position. Juan Vargues, currently head of the entrance systems division at ASSA ABLOY, has been appointed as the new CEO. Johansson will remain in his current role until year-end.

“I would like to thank Roger for his five years with Dometic. Roger has achieved an outstanding transformation of the company, with the IPO in 2015 as an important milestone. Today, the company stands very strong and now enters the next phase. With Juan’s strong business experience and proved leadership, I and the board have found a very suitable leader for the next phase in the company’s development,” says Fredrik Cappelen, chairman of the board at Dometic.

”I am leaving Dometic after five intense years. Following an extensive transformation, the company now stands strong. I still have a lot of heart for the company, but now is a good moment for a new leader to continue Dometic’s fantastic journey ahead. I have made this decision as I want to pursue a number of private projects before I decide to take on any new assignments,” says Roger Johansson.

”I have accepted the offer to become the new CEO of Dometic with great humility. I am really looking forward to leading the company to the next level and continue the successful work that Roger and his team has initiated,” said Vargues.

Johansson will continue as CEO until the year-end, when Vargues take office as CEO.

Vargues, today Head of Entrance Systems at ASSA ABLOY, has previously worked as President and CEO of the Besam Group and has held several positions within the SKF group.

Sweden-based Dometic’s North American unit is Dometic Corp., a supplier of heating, air conditioning and refrigeration products as well as awnings and other products to the recreational vehicle and marine industries.
