Düsseldorf, 1 August 2023 – Today, C&A Europe welcomes Carsten Horn as its new Market Lead for Germany from August 1st 2023.
Carsten brings more than 25 years of B2C experience in different consumer-facing industries, amongst them well-known brands such as NORDSEE, Tchibo, Cinemaxx and BLUME 2000. In these roles he has been a transformational leader, helping to bring traditional brands to state of the art. In his previous role as CEO and Managing Director at NORDSEE, Carsten oversaw multiple sales channels in a market composed of 350 restaurants in eleven European countries.
An omnichannel retail enthusiast with digital, marketing and sales background, Carsten will bring his knowledge of retail markets, his experience with innovation management and his consumer-centric approach to the Market Lead role, in order to enhance especially the point-of-sale experience and the “quality of stay” to C&A’s stores in Germany. Furthermore, his focus will be on breaking down the boundaries between off- and online towards a seamless, best-inclass omnichannel customer experience.
Jason Morgan, Chief Operating Officer, C&A Europe, says: “Consumer-obsession is a core C&A value and we were looking for a leader of Germany who would role model this core value. Carsten has the right balance of vision and action, logic and magic, ambition and care. His hunger for growth is contagious. I am confident Carsten and his new team will unlock our German market for sustained and profitable growth and modernize our approach and ways of working. I am thrilled and honored to welcome Carsten to the C&A family.”
