Change in Kögel sales division - Jens Schroth takes the helm in the German-speaking region
New head of sales in Germany, Austria and Switzerland
The 42-year-old industrial manager has many years of sales experience in the trailer and commercial vehicle sector. Schroth’s first sales experience was with a world market leader for gases, technology and services for industry. He started focusing on commercial vehicles, and primarily trailers, in the year 2000 when he worked in the sales department of an internationally renowned trailer axle manufacturer. In 2004, he moved to Europe's market leader for semi-trailers, where he started as a regional sales manager and worked his way up to international key account manager.
“We are very pleased to have attracted another experienced industry expert for Kögel”, says Ulrich Humbaur, owner of Kögel. “We are sure that as the head of sales for the German-speaking region, he will provide important impetus, ensuring that we continue to grow on our core market.”
