Delticom AG, Hanover – 23.02.2017. Reinforcement in the B2B area at Europe’s largest online tyre wholesaler, Delticom: Since January 2017, Nathalie Kronenberg has been in charge of Key Account Management B2B of the listed company with headquarters in Hanover. From there, the 38-year-old will lead the strategic development of the company’s B2B key accounts worldwide. In addition to building the European trade, Kronenberg’s tasks also include expanding the business to America and the Asia/Pacific region, as well as further promoting the digitisation of the company’s bulk business. Delticom already operates online shops for wholesale customers in many European countries and further afield, for example Yourtyres.co.uk and Fleettyres24.co.uk in Great Britain.
“Welcoming Nathalie on board means gaining an expert with an excellent network who will provide us with valuable support, especially in the further internationalisation and digitisation of our bulk business”, explains Andreas Faulstich, Head of B2B at Delticom. “I am in no doubt that Nathalie’s professional expertise and human qualities will enable her to strengthen our B2B trade worldwide, and that above all she will be a helpful partner to our key customers.” Ms Kronenberg, a qualified economist, has been involved in the wholesale tyre industry since 2004, and brings a wealth of experience from the sector, including key positions in purchasing and international wholesale, especially in Asia.
“I’m looking forward to the upcoming challenges. Together with Delticom’s B2B team, I want to build on the company’s existing strengths, as well as focusing on the strategic development of our key wholesale accounts. Delticom has already enjoyed much success with its B2B services. The next step is to take this partnership-based trading model and continue to optimise and expand it, for example through new delivery methods”, says Ms Kronenberg. According to Kronenberg, all parties will profit from the planned expansion of the key account trade: “My aim is to develop a holistic approach that allows our key customers to become partners in the bulk business, retail, and e-commerce sectors.”
