Jochen Dosch is leaving the company after 22 years
Catja Caspary (41), who currently serves as Vice President Trade Fair Management, has been named Vice President Marketing Communications with immediate effect and will thus assume responsibility for Koelnmesse's event-related customer and media relations. Her predecessor Jochen Dosch is leaving the company after 22 years to pursue new professional challenges.
Catja Caspary, who has been with the company since 2012, already worked as a manager in Marketing Communications before her current position in Trade Fair Management and is therefore well familiarised with the requirements of the job. In addition to her new responsibility, she will initially maintain her role as Vice President Trade Fair Management. The portfolio includes the events spoga+gafa, International Hardware Fair, Asia-Pacific Sourcing, h+h cologne and spoga horse. She will continue to report to Chief Operating Officer Oliver Frese.
"With these changes, effective immediately, we are addressing the needs of our future customer and market-focused portfolio development," says Frese. "We look forward to continuing to work with Ms Caspary and wish her every success in her new role. We would like to express our sincere thanks to Mr Dosch for his successful and dedicated work over the past 22 years with Koelnmesse and wish him all the best for his personal and professional future."
