Schottel Nederland: Sachs becomes new managing director


The Dutch branch of the German company Schottel has appointed Sebastian Sachs as its new Managing Director, and Ewoud Hooymans as the new Sales Manager.

Sebastian Sachs has already been appointed as the new Managing Director of Schottel Nederland with effect from 1 April 2024. He officially succeeds his predecessor René Lange.

Sebastian Sachs joined Schottel GmbH in 2016 as Controller. He has held various management positions, most recently as Director Finance & Administration. From his previous work, he brings extensive knowledge of the propulsion manufacturer’s global subsidiaries to his new position.

Schottel expands sales responsibilities

He will be supported by sales specialist Ewoud Hooymans, who in his new role as Sales Director will take on a greater responsibility in the operational business. After many years as Sales Director of the Dutch subsidiary, he is now responsible for all new system sales and service in the Benelux region, as well as new system sales in the UK.

The previous Managing Director, René Lange, is moving within the company for personal reasons. “We would like to thank René Lange for his excellent work to date. He has made a significant contribution to the very good positioning of our Dutch subsidiary,” says Stefan Kaul, Managing Director of Schottel. “At the same time, we are delighted that René will now also be contributing his extensive knowledge to our After Service Sales Germany”.
