“I am pleased to welcome Felix to our team in Western Europe. He has a great track record in Germany and will further shape our ambitious growth in Germany. With Felix, Ahrend Germany gets a highly motivated, experienced and competent leader. I have every confidence that he will give Ahrend Germany a positive impulse.”  says Commercial Director Western Europe, Jelle van der Kolk.

Felix Kröncke: “ I am very much looking forward to joining Ahrend as Managing Director in Germany with immediate effect. The pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we work. Hybrid work and sustainability are top of mind today. With its 125 years of experience, this is the focus of Ahrend and Ahrend supports companies worldwide in their implementation of sustainable and hybrid working environments. Next to that, timeless design and top quality products from Ahrend’s own production sites create the basis for a successful process. The German market is facing exactly these challenges and I am looking forward to helping companies with sustainable and future-proof office interiors from Ahrend.”

Ahrend is pleased to have attracted Felix to continue the strong tradition in providing customers in Germany with sustainable and vitalising workspaces.
