After more than seven years with Hansgrohe North America, Russ Wheeler has stepped down from his post as president. Sibylle Mair, vice president of finance and controlling, has assumed the position of interim president. She has been with Hansgrohe NA for the past seven years.

During his term, Wheeler positioned the North American subsidiary for growth, leading to increased production at the Alpharetta-based facility, expanding its offerings to both domestic and emerging markets. From large-scale commercial projects to online vendors, Wheeler successfully navigated the company through a changing landscape of distribution channels. He also led by example, serving on the board of trustees at MODA, Museum of Design Atlanta and is a board member of the Cumming-Forsyth Chamber of Commerce and German-American Chamber of Commerce.
