Hamburg-born Jan Lorenz, age 45, with an international career at Jungheinrich on his CV, is now returning to Germany. For several years, he has held senior positions in the US market, where he developed a dealer network and later was in charge of the direct sales organisation before returning to Germany as Vice President Regional Sales and Marketing. In 2014, he moved to Great Britain for his recent position as Managing Director, where he has led a rapid, profitable growth through creation and implementation of an ambitious strategy.
“I feel honoured to head up the German organisation at a time where the pace of change towards lean logistics, automation and connectivity is increasing rapidly. For me, the people who work at Toyota Material Handling Deutschland are at the core of everything we do. Continuous investment in the capabilities and well-being of our team will benefit customer relations.”
Jan Lorenz takes office on October 1st, 2018, succeeding Norman Memminger who has been appointed Senior Vice President for Toyota Material Handling Europe’s important Rental & Used business.
“Reinforcing our Rental & Used operations with Norman Memminger will allow Stefan Gradenwitz a stronger focus on his role as Senior Vice President for Service & Logistics”, Matthias Fischer illustrates his reorganisation of the European top management team.
