At Epoch Traumwiesen GmbH there are internal changes. Since 1 June, Roger Gondel has been appointed new Sales Director for Germany/Austria.

The Sales Director Germany/Austria, Roger Gundel, takes over the complete management of the German-Austrian sales team. He is also in close contact with Managing Director Willi Schiffner. In January 2019 Gundel was hired as General Sales Manager at Epoch Traumwiesen. At the beginning, he assumed responsibility for the toy specialists division, including the department store and department store divisions, and headed the Epoch field sales team.

Epoch – New formation of the sales team

Decades of experience and very good knowledge of the German toy trade round off Grundel’s profile. He has held a leading position at Nintendo and Revell, among others.

The newly created function of Head of New Business and Retail will be taken over by Mr. Bretthauer-Baum, who was previously Sales Manager. Since the beginnings of Epoch Traumwiesen GmbH in 2012, Bretthauer-Baum has already been working for Epoch and has assumed various management functions in the sales team at home and abroad.

Mr. Schiffner, Managing Director of Epoch Traumwiesen GmbH, draws a positive balance on the set-up of his sales team in Germany and Austria: “We have started very successfully into the first months of the year. Especially with the Sylvanian Families brand, we have recorded double-digit growth since the launch of the TV series on Netflix in December 2018. I am therefore pleased that we will be able to position ourselves more broadly with two experienced sales people in the future. Our goal is to continue to be successful in all channels and to grow”.
