Schraft has nearly 20 years’ experience with Osram and its luminaire business Siteco, heading up a variety of business units over the years.

He was instrumental in guiding Osram through its stock market flotation last year, and has also held senior roles in corporate strategy and brand development.

On making the appointment announcement, Havells-Sylvania’s global CEO Anil Raj Gupta said: ‘Christian’s proven track record in senior management at Osram, coupled with his industry expertise puts him in an ideal position to drive growth across all areas of our business.’

The company said Schraft ‘will become the driving force’ for Havells-Sylvania’s growth in Europe, working closely with the strategic business units and country managers.
