Bram De Clerck and Jens Poehlker
Europe/Singapore - Robe lighting starts 2023 with the announcement of two new roles boosting its international management team, both looking ahead and eyeing the company’s expansion over the next several years.
Bram De Clerck adds ‘key account manager Europe’ to his existing ‘business development manager’ detail, while Jens Poehlker takes on a new role as regional sales manager for Asia on top of his position as MD for Robe’s Singapore office.
This follows the announcement at the end of 2022 of Ingo Dombrowski as Robe’s new international sales director, while Harry von den Stemmen became key global account manager as well as taking on a more ambassadorial role in the company.
Like Ingo and Harry, both Bram and Jens have already been integral to the growth and success of the Robe operation for some years.
Bram’s new role as key account manager for Europe will include assisting and following up of the day-to-day business with distributors across Benelux, Italy, Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria, and he will continue the co-ordinating and management of high-profile club projects in China.
As BDM, he will focus on specifications and working closely with lighting and visual designers, production managers and promotors to realise the creative goals of their projects. He will also remain in close contact with individuals and companies seeking to advance Robe’s global vision and horizons in harmonious and innovative ways.
Prior to joining the Robe international team full time in 2017, Bram worked for leading Benelux sales and distribution company Controllux as a business development specialist for the Robe brand and products across Benelux.
Singapore based Jens joined Robe as MD for Robe Asia Pacific in 2016 and has steered that operation through the many pandemic-related challenges, building a talented and stable team to work alongside him. “It is now time to set the focus on bigger targets!” he stated.
Robe further announced the appointment of Michel Arntz as a new key account manager for Europe at the start of the new year.
