Change in management at NOTEBORN

Heerlen, October 1st, 2020.

The handover has been planned for a long time: On October 1st, 2020, Bas Philippens will take over the management of NOTEBORN BV. With this change, the subsidiary of Vivonio Furniture GmbH is sending a strong signal of future develop­ments.

 The management change at NOTEBORN has been planned for a long time: For the past decades, the former CEO and owner Norman Noteborn has developed NOTEBORN into a highly profes­sional manufacturer of custom-made dressing rooms and wardrobes. The tradition of craftsman­ship combined with the latest production technologies and high service are the key to the ­company’s success today.


From October 1st, 2020, Bas Philippens will take the role as CEO for NOTEBORN. Bas Philippens has a degree in engineering, and he has ­extensive ­experience in operational management functions and as managing ­director. Originally from the Heerlen area, he has held positions at corporations such as Nestlé and GE Healthcare in Germany, most recently at the cosmetics­ company Estée Lauder in Ant­werpen. Bas Philippens has worked in corporations as well as in start-ups and family businesses. After holding several specia­lised management positions, Bas Philippens is pleased to be able to take up­ a cross-functional management position at NOTEBORN.


The synergies within the Vivonio Group will continue to be­ exploited under the new leadership with a close collaboration between NOTEBORN and the sister company KA Interiør in Denmark, which also produces bespoke wardrobes. To achieve synergies across the companies, the Sales Director for a number of years, Kristian Bonde, has been appointed Commercial Director for both companies and in Vivonio Schranksysteme.
