JJO’s national sales manager Jamie Schneider has agreed to join Häcker Küchen as UK sales director.
Schneider will take up his post at the end of January. He will replace former UK managing director Sven Herden, who joined Häcker’s smaller rival Rotpunkt as that firm’s managing director last November.
According to Häcker, Schneider gains a kitchen sales expert with 32 years’ experience in the UK KBB market.
Häcker said that the UK sales team and the showroom staff in London will help to settle Schneider into his new role.
Jörn Varnholt, export distribution manager Europe and the UK field service team have “warmly welcomed” their new colleague.
“We welcome Jamie Schneider as a new member to the Häcker family and wish him a good start and success in his new position”, said Varnholt.
Häcker Küchen is a family-owned kitchen manufacturer producing fitted kitchens on its site in Rödinghausen, East Westphalia.
In 2017, the company had more than 1,550 employees and sales of €553 million.
JJO is a kitchen maker based in Lancashire. Schneider had been the firm’s national sales manager since 2014 and area sales manager for a decade before that.
