Kühnel, who has been with the infrastructure specialist since 1999, becomes the third managing director of eps's German business
By IQ on 05 Apr 2018
After 19 years with the company, eps senior account manager Celine Kühnel has been named a managing director.
Joining existing MDs Andreas Degen and Martin Steffen, Kühnel will as of 15 April be responsible for the German-headquartered event infrastructure supplier’s operations business. She will be based in eps GmbH’s Bergheim office.
Since joining the company in 1999, Kühnel (pictured) has been responsible for a number of tours as project manager, including Phil Collins, Robbie Williams, AC/DC, the Rolling Stones and Herbert Grönemeyer. She has been in her current role since 2013.
Steffen, an MD of eps GmbH and its parent company, eps holding, says: “Celine has been part of the eps family for almost 20 years and knows all the ups and downs in the company’s history. I have been working closely with Celine for four years, and during this time have seen how well Celine has become familiar with the national and international business and assumed responsibility.
“We are happy that we found what we have been looking for in our own company”
“I am convinced that Celine, with her know-how, experience and special industry knowledge acquired over many years, is the person who embodies the qualities of eps and will continue and further develop them in the interest of the company.
“We are happy that we found what we have been looking for with Celine in our own company. In this way, we see the positive spirit and continuity of our development secured.”
Kühnel adds: “I am pleased to be able to apply all that I have learned over the past 20 years in a responsible and influential way: define destinations, determine courses, assemble equipment, tune up crew, observe weather and storms, and explore new waters along the way.”
