Marcolin announced last week that Stephan Hinkerode, current general manager of Marcolin Deutschland, is taking larger resposibilities and will now oversee the company’s business in the U.K., the Nordics and the DACH region. Hinkerode, who joined Marcolin in 2016 from Safilo, will report directly to Antonio Jové, Head of EMEA. The company said that the move was aimed at creating new synergies between key European markets, however keeping the London, Stockholm and Cologne offices in place. The U.K. and Nordics regions were previously managed by James Gotch who is leaving the company by mutual agreement.
