“We are thrilled to welcome Uwe to Mark VII.” said Lee Norton, departing CEO of Mark VII. “His proven track record of driving business growth and his passion for innovation make him the ideal leader to guide the company into its next phase. During my time at Mark VII, I have come to know so many amazing people and I am proud of how far we have come during these years. I will be keeping a close eye on the exciting development of Mark VII.”

Former CEO, Lee Norton will be transitioning to a new European role within Mark VII’s parent company, WashTec AG, and will be based out of their UK office. He will be leaving Mark VII at the end of June 2024 after seven years of leadership.
