Josef Warmeling starts at Kögel

German trailer builder, Kögel, has appointed Josef Warmeling as the new Managing Director for Sales in Western Europe.

According to Kögel, his appointment, alongside fellow managing directors Petra Adrianowytsch, Thomas Heckel, Thomas Eschey and Massimo Dodoni will not only strengthen the management team, but also the clout of the business.

The new appointment will reportedly form a double spearhead in Sales, where Warmeling will be responsible for Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Benelux states, France, Spain, Portugal, Scandinavia and the UK. He will also drive forward and expand value-added services like Kögel finance, full service, telematics and the used vehicle business. He will also be responsible for the company’s collaborative work with associations and OEMs.

In his capacity as Managing Director for Sales, Massimo Dodoni is responsible for Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Poland, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. He will also develop new markets for Kögel, with a greater focus placed on the Aftermarket division, to fully meet the requirements of Kögel customers throughout Europe.

“My previous managing directors have done an excellent job in recent years, and we have grown at a faster rate than average,” said Kögel  owner, Ulrich Humbaur.

“To consolidate and build on this growth, and even more importantly, our customer focus in the coming years, I have chosen Josef Warmeling as an additional managing director, who will put his skills to good use in the areas entrusted to him,” he said.

“I am looking forward to my new role on the Kögel team,” said Warmeling. “Over the next few years, our goal is to close the gap between ourselves and our big market competitors, and to continue to position ourselves as a strong number three in Europe. We will place a clear focus on our customer’s requirements for the future: high flexibility, short downtimes, low life cycle costs and premium-quality products.”
