Since 1 November 2017 Jörg Kessler has been strengthening Tridonic, the lighting technology manufacturer, as SVP Global Sales & Marketing. He takes over from David Barnby, who will be taking retirement at the end of the year.

In his new position Jörg Kessler will be assuming responsibility for the development and implementation of the global sales strategy. Jörg Kessler will be driving forward the shift from transaction-based business – with a strong focus on the sales of solution concepts including software and supporting services. As SVP Global Sales & Marketing he will report directly to Tridonic CEO Guido van Tartwijk.

Jörg Kessler can look back on more than 25 years of relevant international experience in sales and business management that he has acquired in the IT, software, services and lighting sectors. He began his career with Siemens immediately after completing his studies in laser technology at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena. Among other things, he worked for Siemens in Singapore from 2005 to 2007 and strengthened the sales and services sector there as Senior Vice President. He then held various sales positions at Nokia Siemens Networks and Siemens. As Senior Vice President, the now 53-year-old headed Osram’s sales activities in West Europe and was responsible for a team of 600 employees. From October 2014 to 2017 he was the CEO for the LPD (Low Pressure Discharge Lamps) division at Osram/LEDvance.
