Daniel Lutz (born 1966) is a Swiss citizen and is currently Managing Director of Nestlé Food and Beverage in the Greater China Region. He will take over at ORIOR in February 2015. Until then, the Group will continue to be led on an interim basis by Bruno de Gennaro.

In addition to this he impressed us from the start with his modest manner, management qualities, strategic thinking and desire to create something sustainable.”
 
Daniel Lutz says the following about his new role: “ORIOR’s story is unique. It will be an honour for me to lead the company into the future. The quality of its product range, its culture of innovation and its unique spirit provide a foundation and an inspiration for me to help write ORIOR’s continuing story.”
 
The Board of Directors would already like to offer its heartfelt thanks to Bruno de Gennaro. Within just a short period of time he has made a decisive mark in terms of strategy and results. As the Head of ORIOR’s Convenience Segment and Member of the Management Board, Bruno de Gennaro will continue to be a key figure for ORIOR.
