Harro Heinz retires, CFO Monika Smetona becomes president at Renkus-Heinz
Renkus-Heinz has appointed Monika Smetona to the role of president. Currently serving as CFO of the privately held loudspeaker manufacturer and a member of the founding Heinz family, Smetona will work with Ralph Heinz, CTO, to lead the company into the future.

Harro Heinz, who is to retire, said; “At Renkus-Heinz, Monika has worked her way up from handling Finances and HR to now maintaining the smooth running of the factory. She has become central to our organisation, our culture and our continued success, and I am confident that together with Ralph, she will keep us on the same positive trajectory for the next phase of our development.

"Looking back at more than 40 years with Renkus-Heinz, there are many current and former employees whose help was critical to get us to where we are. From the bottom of my heart, I am very thankful for their contribution, and I am blessed that both my son and my daughter are interested in the business and are well equipped to accelerate the growth, while keeping it a private enterprise dedicated to creating a better sound solution. I am fortunate that I will continue my involvement with Renkus-Heinz through my board of director position.”

Ralph Heinz added, “Monika Smetona is the ideal candidate for President. She has the fiscal conservatism and discipline along with strengths in operations and HR. To complement Monika’s duties, I will continue as CTO to provide future-looking vision and to ensure continued innovation.”
