Sunseeker Internationa recently announced Andrea Frabetti, the company’s current chief technical officer, will take over as the new CEO with immediate effect following the resignation of Christian Marti.
Frabetti will work closely with CFO Mike McMillan and COO Michael Straughan to form a new strategic committee that will focus on further developing the strategic framework for the business and driving the Sunseeker brand forward.
The strategic committee will continue to work closely with the current executive management team Adrian Powell, Sean Robertson, Barbara Baker (as interim HR Director) and Sian Dodds, building on the trading success of 2018 and formalizing a more product-facing organization structure and a robust global distribution network.
“On behalf of Dalian Wanda [Sunseeker’s majority shareholder], we would like to thank Christian for his input, professionalism and leadership. Christian leaves Sunseeker in a very healthy position focused on its future growth,” John Zeng, Wanda’s board representative for Sunseeker said. “We have worked with the Sunseeker executive management team to create the strategic committee and we are confident that Sunseeker, with the continued support of Dalian Wanda, will be in an even stronger position to grow on its success.”
