Thomas Jöhncke is new managing director for the import activities of Nic. Christiansen Group, where he will get the responsibility for the execution of the new strategy of the Group, including a continuation of the development of NCG Operations.

Nic. Christiansen Group has got a new member of the management, as the 52-year-old Thomas Jöhncke has joined as new managing director for NCG Import A/S.

We are very happy, that we have succeeded to attract Thomas. He has a strong profile with a solid and relevant experience from our line of business, and we have estimated that he is the right candidate to continue the positive development, characterizing Nic. Christiansen Group,” says Niels Vrist Bertelsen, managing director in Nic. Christiansen Group.

Thomas Jöhncke comes to Nic. Christiansen Group with 19 years’ experience from the Volkswagen group. Here he has among other things been at the head of Audi Danmark, and he has been managing director for the Volkswagen Premium brands – a position he attended to until 2017. Most recently Thomas Jöhncke has been employed at B&O, where he has been responsible for Bang & Olufsen in the Nordic countries and Benelux.

I am very much looking forward getting back to the car business, which has not been less dynamic and exciting, since I was there the last time. I would like to contribute to getting Nic. Christiansen Group as agile as possible to scale the business, and by that to have a good basis to affiliate new brands and markets to our business,” says Thomas Jöhncke.

Most recently Lars has been front figure in the work to develop and launch NCG Operations.

We have had a good and fruitful cooperation, where Lars has generated strong results for the Group. However, we have estimated that there is a need for another profile for the development of the import business and One NCG Operating Model, as well as to complete next phase of implementation of operation of this. Therefore, we have in the best agreement agreed to stop the cooperation. I would like to thank Lars Beck for his big effort for Nic. Christiansen Group and we wish him good luck in the future,” says Niels Vrist Bertelsen, managing director in Nic. Christiansen Group.
