Kim-André Vives, previously Branch Manager Freiburg and member of the Board of Directors at SÜDVERS, has been Head of SÜDVERS International since 01.01.2021. In this newly created function, Mr Vives is responsible for the expansion of the international business of SÜDVERS International and the strategic development of the WBN – Worldwide Broker Network, which was co-founded in 1989. The new international strategy also provides a boost to the international consulting expertise at SÜDVERS International. “My previous tasks at SÜDVERS have always had a strong international component. So I am particularly looking forward to the new challenge and the support provided by fantastic and experienced colleagues in expanding our existing partnerships worldwide,” says Mr Vives, looking forward to the stronger internationalization of the SÜDVERS strategy.
Mr Vives takes over from Reinhard Riehl, who was Director International at SÜDVERS up until 31 December 2020.
