Mars Petcare

Jochen Horstmann is the new marketing director of Mars Petcare.

Jochen Horstmann (photo) was appointed marketing director at Mars Petcare in Germany on 1 October.

The 34-year-old has been working in category management at Mars Petcare since 2012, spending the last two years as category development director. His successor in this post will be announced at a later date. Horstmann takes over from Hans Bakker, who assumes the post of European business transformation director with immediate effect. Bakker had been marketing director at Mars Petcare since 2014, having previously occupied various positions at local and European level.

There is also a new arrival at the Verden offices: Ralph Thoma, previously customer business leader at Mars Chocolate in Viersen, took up the role of customer business director in Verden, Lower Saxony, at the beginning of October.
