Likewise, Diono has appointed Peter Wilfahrt as the brand’s Chief Digital Officer. Mansker and Wilfahrt join the Diono team led by Tim Maule, CEO and President of Diono.
“I am thrilled to announce that Greg Mansker has agreed to join the Board at Diono,” said Tim Maule, CEO and President of Diono. “His experience and knowledge of the global juvenile business will help fast track the growth of Diono and the management team and I are looking forward to working closely with him.”
In a distinguished and highly successful career of over 30 years, Mansker led the international business development business unit at Graco, before joining Chicco USA as CEO. After establishing Chicco as a leading car seat and stroller brand in North America, Mansker was then appointed to CEO and Chairman of America’s at Goodbaby International, leading the acquisition of Evenflo, and the introduction of Cybex and gb Brands.
“Joining the Board of Diono at this time is very exciting,” said Mansker. “The plans that Tim has shared with me for the brand and the product range will place Diono in a very unique place as one of the industry’s true pioneers.”
Additionally, Peter Wilfahrt has been appointed Chief Digital Officer at Diono. Wilfahrt, a self-proclaimed “digital native”, is a digital and e-commerce expert and author having recently published his first book, Cracking eCommerce for fun and profit. After a career starting with the German Chamber of Commerce leading digital strategy and development in Bavaria, he developed Ready for Innovation as Chief Digital Officer, offering bespoke digital solutions to the automotive business, while running several e-commerce retailers in Germany.
“Peter has a unique consumer insight and technical knowledge of all aspects of today’s digital world, and recently becoming a new father has only deepened his already detailed experience of the juvenile market,” said Maule. “He has immense energy and I am looking forward to Diono becoming a digital first business under his guidance to help meet the demand of the changing consumer retail market.”
“Diono is an amazing brand with a global appeal. I am looking forward to taking our #madeofseattle brand around the world and introducing new parents like myself to our innovative and safe products,” said Wilfahrt.
With the extensive industry experience behind these appointments, Diono can continue to evolve as a brand as well as build on existing achievements and the amazing success that the brand has accomplished under the direction of Tim Maule, further making its presence as a leader in the juvenile products category.
