After studying business administration, he began his career as a sales manager and later became Managing Director of Marketing and Sales at Klöber GmbH, which has also belonged to the Sedus Stoll Group since 1999.
After further leadership positions at office furniture manufacturers Wilkhahn and Dauphin, Holger Jahnke took on management board tasks of the Marketing and Sales departments in 2012 at Sedus Stoll AG and in 2017, was appointed by the Supervisory Board as its spokesperson.
Holger Jahnke applied his profound knowledge, dedication and passion on behalf of the workforce and the company every single day. His sincere affinity with all customers was especially important for him. He will remain a special example for Sedus and the entire industry.
