BERLIN — James C. Wei, Beiersdorf AG’s executive board member for Asia, has resigned. The 54-year-old Wei joined the company in 2009 during a period of expansion of Beiersdorf’s business in China; he will step down Dec. 31. His replacement is a familiar face — Thomas-B. Quaas, the company’s chief executive officer.
Quaas, who has been with Beiersdorf for 33 years, will take over the responsibility for the Asia region, with particular focus on China, until further notice. As previously reported, Quaas is slated to hand over the ceo reins in April to Stefan F. Heidenreich.
