Leica Camera AG reports:

Wetzlar, 28/01/2015 - Leica Camera AG is rebuilding their global sales organization and  in this context is newly rearranging the responsibilities for the German market.  Under the umbrella of the global Sales Unit, in the future a German organization is operating in addition to the various branch offices in Europe, America, Asia and Australia.  By the  global reorganization of the sales areas, the markets in which the Leica Camera AG is represented by subsidiaries and trading partners will be even more closely closely tied to the company's headquarters in the Hessian town of Wetzlar.  The goal is to expand the national companies globally to achieve greater market penetration.

The Leica Camera AG has grown in recent years, counter to the trend in the global photography market, especially by working closely with retailers and a consistent focus on the company's own retail business with Leica galleries, Leica stores and boutiques. To further increase the efficiency and create potential for additional growth, sales and retail operate in the future in separate organizational structures. The area of sales will be led by Global Sales Director Steffen Keil (47)in the future with immediate effect. He is directly responsible for the national organizations.  He reports to Kaltner Oliver, CEO of Leica Camera AG for Marketing, Sales and Retail.  Prior to this, Keil had already been successful by pushing ahead with the internationalization of the sales structures.

At the head of the German subsidiary will be Falk Friedrich (41) who, in recent years, was very successful in expanding international sales transactions with trading partners in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.   In his function, the former sales manager for Germany, Tim Pullman (43), has contributed significantly to the growth of Leica Camera AG in the German market. He changes over to the retail sector and assumes the newly created position of Head of Retail Stores Leica Germany and Austria.  As such, he is responsible for the Leica Stores in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Berlin, Vienna and Wetzlar.
