Martin Professional has reorganized some key internal departments at its Danish headquarters with the goal of increasing the power of its sales and marketing functions. The reorganization took effect as of January 1, 2002.

Martin president and CEO Kristian Kolding has taken over the position of international sales director, entertainment, previously under the leadership of Pio Nahum. Pio will maintain his position as international marketing director as well as his post as CEO of Martin Professional Italy. Gorm Teichert, who recently filled the new position of international sales director, architectural, also assumes responsibility for product management in the architectural segment. In addition, export sales manager Anders Kryger has taken over responsibility for Martin's team of area sales managers, as well as a growing number of associated companies.

"With these changes, I feel confident that we are well prepared for an aggressive sales and marketing effort in the year to come," stated Kristian Kolding.
