She also looks after SEWERIN’s international distribution partners and customers in Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Russia, Canada, Romania, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Melanie Vogel enjoys travelling, reading and attending events.

Karen Balke-Fechner, was born in Herford in 1965, joined SEWERIN in mid October and took over management of the sales office from Anna Blasius.

She is a trained industrial business management assistant with further training in marketing.

She started her career as an export clerk before heading up several office teams.

As a speaker of English, French and Spanish, export-oriented companies have always been at the centre of her professional career.
