New Expert for Kögel Sales in France

Burtenbach, 10 October 2017

  • Christophe Obino is the new Head of Sales in France

Christophe Obino will be the new Head of Sales for Kögel in France. French-born and 50 years old, he will be responsible for all the German trailer manufacturer's sales, dealer and service activities in France from the 1st of October 2017. Furthermore, Obino will focus primarily on the French key accounts, in order to analyse specific needs and give advice on the Kögel range of products for the forwarding and construction industry. In his new role, he will be reporting directly to the managing director for sales.

Obino has an Executive MBA in Advanced Management and also many years of experience in sales in the commercial vehicle and goods transporting sector. Before joining Kögel, Obino was responsible for sales and marketing for France at several internationally renowned trailer manufacturers and manufacturers of transport refrigeration units.

"We have gained an 'old hand‘ for Kögel in the shape of Christophe Obino, who will take over the helm in France in good time for the Solutrans in Lyon", says Ulrich Humbaur, owner of Kögel. "Together with the comprehensive dealer network now available in France, there is no doubt that Obino will contribute to a substantial increase in our market shares in France."
