The family business GRAFE with headquarters in Blankenhain has expanded its sales team. Jean Annequin is the new contact for France, Steffen Schubert is in charge of the Central Germany area and Anna Gulyas is responsible for the sales area Hungary and Romania. “With our new staff, we are positioning ourselves even better and expanding our sales competence,” said GRAFE Sales Manager Lars Tonnecker.

Jean Annequin took up his post in October last year after two consecutive internships in 2017 and 2018. For GRAFE, he is responsible for the French sales area. The 23-year-old has a Bachelor in Business Administration from the Graduate School of Management and four months of the European Erasmus program in Cologne. “My goal is to further develop the French market for GRAFE and to serve customers directly on site,” he explains.

Steffen Schubert has been responsible for the Central Germany area at GRAFE since October 2018. The certified commercial specialist and manager in retail trade was previously active in purchasing and later head of the department. “With eleven years of experience in service, customer satisfaction and professional project management are very important to me. An important criterion here is reliability,” promises the 33-year-old.

Anna Gulyas is in charge of the sales area Hungary and Romania for GRAFE. She studied design engineering at the Obuda University in Budapest. In 2015 she seized the opportunity to complete an Erasmus semester at the Highschool Niederrhein in Krefeld. Then she worked for one year as a sales assistant in a luxury furniture shop in Budapest. After finishing her bachelor’s degree, she completed her master’s degree at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics as a Polymer Technologist Engineer. The 25-year-old found her way to GRAFE through positions as Sales Assistant in Corporate Sales Services at a company called B+N and as Application Engineer at Morgan Advanced Materials.
