(Denmark) - Martin Professional announced that Leif Orkelbog-Andresen is to be the new Business Area Manager – Projects, overseeing project activities throughout Europe for Martin’s Danish-based EMEA sales organization.

Orkelbog-Andresen comes from a position of Market Manager Architectural for the Nordic countries where he has successfully developed Martin’s project market since August 2008. In his new role, Leif will primarily be driving the European project team, ensuring Martin’s success in the project market, as well as strengthening relations to key industry architects, lighting designers and customers. With reference to EMEA management and in close co-ordination with fellow colleagues worldwide, Leif will help establish Martin as a strong business partner in key markets across Europe.
Villads Thomsen, VP for Martin EMEA, stated, “With his proven track record from the Nordic countries, Leif will bring valuable insight and guidance to our European sales team, increasing the success of Martin in the project market.”
Within the EMEA region, Martin has also announced that it will now serve its Belgian customers directly from its headquarters following the recent insolvency of longtime distributor EVDV.
Martin EMEA Vice President Villads Thomsen commented on the change, “It is unfortunate that a highly valuable partner like EVDV could not overcome the economic challenges, however I am confident that with our new sales structure for Belgium we will be able to develop the Belgian market further and grow business together with our customers.”
Taking over sales responsibilities in the Belgian market is Martin Professional South Europe Commercial Director Martin Fournier, who will work together with the company’s Sales, Service and Customer Care Departments to serve the Belgian market.
“Our goal in Belgium is to create a strong and stable network that supports our end customers in the most optimal way while expanding upon the relationships that EVDV has developed over the years,” Fournier stated.
