Erol Kirilmaz will be taking charge of worldwide sales for Osram’s largest business unit, General Lighting, effective immediately.
Prior to this role, Kirilmaz was responsible for Osram business in Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.
“In Erol Kirilmaz, we have gained an absolute professional with many years of experience in international sales, particularly in very fast-growing developing countries around the world,” said Klaus-Günter Vennemann, CEO of Osram’s General Lighting business unit.
Kirilmaz succeeds Alfred Felder, who will be taking up new challenges outside of the company.
In the last 20 years, Kirilmaz has served in various roles, mainly in connection with sales, first at Siemens and then at Osram. “Our sales team will be even closer to our customers in future and will further consolidate our position as the preferred light supplier,” said Kirilmaz.
OSRAM AG’s General Lighting business unit was formed when the Professional and the Consumer Lighting divisions were combined last year. With more than 26,000 employees, General Lighting is the largest business unit within Osram. Its portfolio ranges from lamps and luminaires to complex light control systems.
