Herma’s Self-adhesive Materials Division has appointed Ralf Ottilie as area sales manager, responsible for the UK, Middle East and parts of eastern Europe.
Ottilie manages international customer accounts and brings extensive experience in the field to his new job. After obtaining his degree in business administration from Nuertingen-Geislingen University, the 39-year-old first worked as a sales manager for a tool manufacturer for six years, followed by three years as a business development manager and three years as a product manager. These jobs included a lot of international travel – in China, Southeast Asia, and Europe.
‘I first got to know Herma as a customer of my first employer and was very impressed by the company when I first visited their headquarters in Filderstadt,’ said Ottilie. ‘I am looking forward to supporting the Herma Self-adhesive Materials sales team with my skills.’
Harald Wallner, head of international sales at Herma Self-adhesive Materials, said: ‘Our growth course means that we need more and more sales staff. With Ralf Ottilie, we have now added a new team member who will help us continue on that course towards success.’
