In Mark Engelen, the Burtenbach-based trailer manufacturer has found its new director of Key Account Management for north-western Europe at Kögel BeNeLux B. V. in Zwolle, who brings extensive experience in logistics and sales to the table. In the new position, created in February 2019, Engelen will be primarily responsible for key accounts in the north-west European region and will report directly to Kögel Managing Director Josef Warmeling. The 55-year-old Dutch native, Engelen, particularly appreciates his new employer’s broad product range and the “fantastic commitment” of Kögel employees.
Kögel founded Kögel BeNeLux B. V., with head office and operating facilities in Zwolle, the Netherlands, in 2017.
