Kallenberg named as inge’s VP sales

Jochen Kallenberg, formerly sales manager at Toray Membrane Europe, has taken up a new post as vice president sales at German ultrafiltration specialists inge watertechnologies AG from September 2010.

In his new position Kallenberg will be drawing on his experience in strategic customer acquisition and the development of existing customer relationships in the global market for water treatment using membrane technology.

Kallenberg started his career at Sandoz AG in 1987 working in chemical production and pharmaceutical chemical development. He then spent 11 years at the Swiss water-treatment specialists Ropur AG, which subsequently became Toray Membrane Europe, where he held his most recent executive post in marketing and product management.

Bruno Steis, CEO of inge watertechnologies, is delighted to see such a distinguished expert in the field joining inge’s ranks: “Jochen Kallenberg knows the international membrane business like the back of his hand. I have no doubt at all that he will be a fantastic addition to our second tier of management.
