Sven Holst and Joachim Lorsbach appointed to the Board of Management at HB Protective Wear

Sven Holst and Joachim Lorsbach have been appointed to the Board of Management at HB Protective Wear. Both have held senior positions at HB for many years and will now assume their duties in new roles as official members of the Board of Management.

The Board has a close and trusting relationship, which has grown steadily over the years, with owner Klaus Berthold. Holst and Lorsbach have held joint procuration since the beginning of 2016, when they also became deputy members of the Board of Management. “The appointment of both of them as managing directors is thus the logical next step in our extraordinarily good and successful cooperation,” says Berthold, explaining their appointment to the Board of Management.

As Director of Sales, Sven Holst (56) has been responsible for national and international product sales at HB Protective Wear since 2011. He will now assume the duties of a COO and control the operational business of the HB Group from the Board of Management. Marcus Müller took over his role as the new Director of Sales at HB Protective Wear on 1 October 2020.

Joachim Lorsbach (66) has been working for HB Protective Wear for 22 years, most recently as Head of Productions for Germany and abroad. He is now responsible for production at an executive level, operationally supported by Mrs Beate Armbrust, who joined HB on 1 December 2019.
