Henkel names Jan-Dirk Auris new adhesives executive

FRANKFURT, Dec 10 (Reuters) - German consumer goods maker Henkel (HNKG_p.DE) named Jan-Dirk Auris, chief of the company’s Asia-Pacific business, to replace the head of its adhesives unit.

He replaces board member Thomas Geitner, who will step down on Dec. 31 for personal reasons, Henkel said in a statement on Friday.

Henkel’s adhesives unit saw sales rise by 9.7 percent on an organic basis in the third quarter of 2010, generating 3.96 billion euros ($5.24 billion) in sales, more than the 3.8 billion euros forecast.

Auris, who joined Henkel in 1984 and has since held a number of management positions, has been the president for Henkel in the Asia-Pacific region since 2008. ($1=.7551 Euro) (Reporting by Michelle Martin; Editing by Hans Peters)
