CPLG reshuffles French and German leadership teams after Team! Licensing acquisition

CPLG has given its German and French operations leadership team a reshuffle, following its acquisition of Team! Licensing in Germany earlier this year.

Changes across the team have seen Joachim Knoedler, formerly managing director of France and Germany, step into the role of  managing director of Germany, where he will focus exclusively on leading the expanded German operations to grow CPLG’s portfolio of world-class brands in the market.

Meanwhile, John Taylor has been appointed managing director of UK and France, adding France to the territories under his existing remit.

Maarten Weck, EVP and MD of CPLG, said: “Joachim and John have exhibited great passion and drive in their roles and we are confident their energies and skillsets are well suited under this realignment to lead our teams in Germany, France and the UK.

“This is an exciting period of growth and we look forward to seamlessly providing our clients with the unrivalled service they have come to expect from CPLG.”

Both Knoedler and Taylor will continue to report into Weck.
