KappAhl: New public relations manager

Annette Ravenshorst has been appointed KappAhl's new public relations manager. KappAhl's listing on the Stockholm Stock Exchange has meant greater interest from around the world, not least from the media. This places major demands on well thought out strategic communication towards many different target groups. KappAhl is therefore strengthening itself to meet these demands.

Annette Ravenshorst has a wide-ranging background and many years experience of PR, information and market communication. Her previous job was as project manager at an advertising agency and she has also worked as public relations manager at the stock exchange listed company MediTeam.

She is 38 years old and took up her post on 1 December.
