Changes in the management of the Health and Beauty Group in Germany


After ten successful years in the management of the Health and Beauty Group, Achim Erndwein, Sales, Event & Marketing Director, will leave the company at the end of April. “Achim Erndwein has been instrumental in the successful development of our media company over the past years, and we very much regret his decision,” says Roberto Valente. At the same time, the Managing Director of the Health and Beauty Group praises the transparency, fairness and friendship with which Achim Erndwein has accompanied the restructuring of the Health and Beauty Group’s management team in recent weeks and will continue to do so until April.

“I had ten exciting and very intensive years at Health and Beauty, for which I am extremely grateful. I am certain that the restructured management team, with Roberto Valente as Managing Director at the helm, will successfully and consistently develop the company,” says Achim Erndwein, who will be joining a well-known manufacturer in the industry.

As a member of the management team, Achim Erndwein had been working at Health and Beauty since 2012, initially as the person responsible for the trade fair and event sector. From 2016, he took on significantly expanded tasks and additional responsibility in the areas of media and marketing, most recently as Event, Sales & Marketing Director for the D-A-CH region.

Restructuring of the management team
Achim Erndwein’s decision accelerates the restructuring of the company. In the new organizational structure, the management team will take on expanded responsibilities. As Director Events, Michaela Buchheister will manage and be responsible for the entire trade show and event team, including all events, in addition to project management of BEAUTY FORUM MUNICH, the company’s most important trade show. As Director Media Sales, Florian Knobloch will be responsible with immediate effect for the organization and management of the entire sales team, thus expanding his existing competencies. Maxi Goewe will take on expanded tasks and responsibilities in the publishing house as Director Publishing / Editor-in-Chief in addition to her activities around the Editor-in-Chief. Furthermore, the newly created position of Director Marketing will be filled by Sarah Kraft as of April 1, 2022.

Expansion of a Press Office in Ettlingen
In the course of this restructuring and realignment, corporate communications will be strengthened: Since the beginning of the year, Kathrin Jakob, as Press Office and PR Manager, has been building up the Press Office at the company location in Ettlingen.

Kathrin Jakob has been working in marketing for the Health and Beauty Group since 2014. Among other things, the business administration graduate was previously in charge of the organization and external communication of the BEAUTY FORUM Stars Award, the industry award for professional cosmetics. She will now be responsible for the Press Office and thus for corporate communications at Health and Beauty Germany GmbH.

“With the in-depth industry know-how of our editorial and freelance author teams as well as our trade fairs and events, we not only want to become more involved in the qualified industry dialogue: We will inform in industry cooperations as well as in the contact and exchange with journalists and media representatives the interested public technically founded and comprehensively about innovations as well as the chances in Aus and further training of the cosmetics industry”, says Roberto Valente.

The Health and Beauty Group 2022
With this far-reaching reorganization, the Health and Beauty Group sees itself very well positioned for the coming tasks and challenges in the media and event market in the beauty industry. “With our motto “We believe in the power of beauty”, we want to highlight the importance of this highly innovative industry and its power and positive influence on people’s well-being and self-confidence,” says Managing Director Roberto Valente.
