The H?fele Group, with headquarters in Nagold, Germany, has named Paul Smith as president of H?fele America Co., its North American subsidiary. Smith succeeds John Hossli, who is retiring as president after serving in that role since 1999. Smith will oversee all company operations in the United States, according to a Jan. 9 release.

“We believe Paul’s 25 years of proven management experience combined with his expertise in architectural interiors, engineering and solutions will lead H?fele America toward continued growth and success,” said Sibylle Thierer, CEO and president, H?fele Group, in the release. “His expertise, passion and leadership also make Paul extremely well suited to contribute to the expanding H?fele global enterprise.”
