Spielwarenmesse Announces Changes to Executive Board

Fair organizer and marketing services company Spielwarenmesse have announced that long-standing executives Ernst Kick (CEO) and Dr. Hans-Juergen Richter will be leaving the Executive Board next summer when their term comes to an end.

The new Board will add industry experts, Christian Ulrich, Florian Hess and Jens Pflüger. The decision was made during the May 8 Supervisory Board meeting.

Christian Ulrich, spokesman for the Management Board, will be responsible for marketing, press and public relations, and new business areas. Florian Hess will be responsible for event organization, sales and legal matters. Jens Pflüger will be responsible for finance, IT, human resources, digitization and member support.

At the end of June 2021, Ernst Kick (2nd from left) and Dr. Hans-Juergen Richter (3rd from left) will hand the executive reins of Spielwarenmesse to a team recruited from the cooperative’s own ranks (from left): Jens Pflüger, Florian Hess and Christian Ulrich.

“Trade fairs are as important as ever and will lose none of their significance. After all, industries across the board thrive on personal business relationships. This strategic step is both logical and right and will ensure that Spielwarenmesse eG continues to operate successfully and proactively,” said Axel Kaldenhoven, the chairman of the Supervisory Board.
