– LUXEMBOURG, Luxembourg –  JAB Holding Company today announced the appointment of Senior Partner Joachim Creus as Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chairman-designate to succeed Peter Harf.

“The Reimanns were always of the view that my successor needed to essentially be a part of their extended family. Joachim has spent the last ten years getting to know them and the next generation of leadership, while progressively taking on ever more important roles in the family office and the operating entities,” said current Board Chairman, Peter Harf. “Given his impeccable moral compass and intimate understanding of the family’s priorities, nobody is better positioned than Joachim to lead the next period of growth.”

“Joachim is a true star. Not only did he earn his place as the youngest partner in JAB’s history when he was just 35, in his decade with the firm he’s successfully negotiated more than $100 billion worth of deals. Joachim’s integrity is second to none and I fully trust his judgment in all situations,” said CEO, Olivier Goudet. “As a JAB partner and confidant to the family, Joachim has spent time living and working across Europe and the United States and has been instrumental to building an enduring investment firm that is ideally positioned for continued long-term value creation.”
