Selecon has announced that Rainer Weggen, formerly European sales manager for DHA Lighting, has joined its European sales team. Rainer takes on a new position within Selecon of market manager for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

Starting in the entertainment industry at Lightpower as customer services manager, he moved on after six years to become DHA Lighting’s sales manager in continental Europe and now joins Selecon after four years in that position.

Mike Goldberg, Selecon’s European sales director said, “Rainer joins Selecon at a very exciting time. We have more products being released this year which I expect will add to the excellent growth we have enjoyed over the past several years in these markets. Rainer will work closely with our German partner, RST distribution GmbH of Hagen, who has provided us with steady sales growth in Germany. Rainer will enhance their work and help to expand our contact with customers in the German, Swiss, and Austrian markets. Whilst the German market may not be in a period of economic growth, we have seen steady sales and are convinced that this move will further stimulate growth as well as providing this important market with further customer care and the service that Selecon is globally known for.”
