New management team joins Sales
Oscar Mateo and Sven Schlobohm have been on board since the beginning of the year. Oscar Mateo will assume management of the newly formed Filmolux Deutschland GmbH and hence responsibility for sales of commercial products in Germany. As "Leiter Vertrieb Neschen" (Head of Sales Neschen) within Neschen Coatings, Sven Schlobohm will be responsible for the sale of Neschen products to distributors and subsidiaries, as part of our intercompany business.
Oscar Mateo (48) is originally from the Rhineland (Düren, near Cologne) and, after qualifying as an industrial clerk, started his career at the paper mill Gebrüder Hoesch Feinpapierfabrik. He worked until 1996 for Sihl AG, the listed parent company of Hoesch, in southern Europe and South America. After that, Mateo was responsible worldwide for the conventional and digital fine art divisions as well as technical papers at Schleicher & Schüll in Einbeck. Prior to his move to Neschen, he led the Print Germany division at paper wholesaler Antalis and, most recently, Marketing and Sales at May und Spies in Düren.
Heiko Kirstein, until now Head of Sales Germany, is transferring to the Sales division of Filmolux Deutschland and taking over the newly created position of Key Account Manager.
Sven Schlobohm (49) was born in Kassel and began his career in the German sales department of the paper concern Arjowiggins, having previously graduated in economics. After stints in Austria and Wiesbaden, where he was tasked with heading up the so-called DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), he managed the customer service centre in Belgium.
Later, Schlobohm took on management of sales of specialist papers, including profit & loss responsibility for this business division and also its operations in China. After 20 years at Arjowiggins, he successfully took care of SME sales and marketing projects across Europe as well as a number of start-ups. As Head of Sales at Neschen Coatings, Sven Schlobohm is now in charge of dealings with distributors as well as our intercompany business.
From 13 to 15 February, Neschen AG will be at the Wetec 2014 exhibition in Stuttgart (Hall 8, stand B32) and at the EuroShop 2014 fair in Düsseldorf (Hall 10, stand H21) from 16 to 20 February.
In the field of functional coating for sheet materials, Neschen AG develops modern, cost-effective coating solutions for every requirement.
Digital printing, adhesive media and protective media products are produced in Bückeburg under the Neschen Coatings brand, while trading activities are pooled under the Filmolux brand. Through global product purchasing, effective information processes and efficient merchandise logistics, Filmolux sales and distribution organisations offer customers not only Neschen products but also a broad range and good service for Viscom and the book protection market.
In 2012, Neschen AG's 400 or so employees generated world-wide annual turnover of €96 million.
