Ingemann doubles its presence in the DACH countries

Today, the German and Danish flags are waving side by side in the wind at Ingemann’s facilities. Why? We are welcoming our new colleague, Thorsten Betten who will help us expand our activities in the DACH countries. Thorsten will join forces with our Technical Sales Manager, Patrick Putzke.

“The last couple of years, we have successfully managed to enter the German market, now we are ready to expand our activities in the DACH countries even further. Thorsten is a heavyweight within our industry, and I am very excited about bringing him onboard,” says Jens Præstgård Møller, Sales Director at Ingemann Components.

Thorsten Betten


Thorsten Betten brings more than 21 years of experience from the lighting industry.

  • Recent job: Sales Director at Xicato where he was responsible for especially the DACH countries but also other Middle European countries like Belgium, the Netherlands and Poland.
  • Grew up in Arnsberg – known as the ‘City of Lights’ due to the large number of lighting manufacturers. Therefore, it seemed like the obvious choice for him to follow a career within lighting.
  • Before finishing Business School, German BJB hired him as a trainee. Thorsten quickly advanced and worked as Sales Manager at BJB for 16 years.
  • Thorsten still lives in Arnsberg near Dortmund in the middle of Germany. A location that allows him to reach most customers within a few hours.
