German bedroom manufacturer Rauch has appointed Markus Jansen to manage its international sales.

Markus brings many years of international sales experience with leading brands to the role. Most recently, the 47-year-old was responsible for sales in Europe and South America at the Düsseldorf-based tea trading company Teekanne GmbH & Co.

His appointment completes Rauch’s sales management team under new MD and CCO Jochen Arndt. Markus will assume overall responsibility for sales development in foreign markets, which remain important growth drivers for Rauch.

"With Markus Jansen we have gained a very experienced sales professional. We are looking forward to his international expertise and his fresh ideas," says Michael Stiehl, managing partner at Rauch.
