Klaas Kortegast will take over as vice president of sales and marketing at CARLISLE CM Europe, leading these divisions for the pan-European group of companies.
Since 2016, Klaas has held senior positions at Rheinzink, where he was most recently responsible for sales and marketing worldwide as a member of the executive board.
In his new role, Klaas will be responsible for realigning CARLISLE’s European sales and marketing, expanding and optimising the existing structures, and making a significant contribution to achieving the CARLISLE Vision 2025 corporate goals.
Commenting on his new role, Klaas said: “The Vision 2025 of CARLISLE and the associated growth plans immediately appealed to me, because the market environment will change significantly in the coming years and those companies will prevail that have a clear customer focus and well-thought-out strategy.
“Proximity to customers and an understanding of their wishes, needs and expectations, as well as high-quality products and systems combined with strategic market cultivation, are key success factors for the future. Here, I see enormous potential for CARLISLE CM Europe to create new standards and assert itself in the strong competitive environment throughout Europe.”
