eGym appoints European director as UK head exits

Equipment and software supplier eGym has appointed Eric Wenig as its European director at the same time that its UK head Jochen Michaelis is leaving the company.

Wenig, previously vice president at Nutanix, Hitachi, and Hewlett-Packard, has spent his career helping companies exploit opportunities offered by digital innovations and concepts. He will be responsible for driving eGym’s brand expansion across the continent.

eGym, which produces electric resistance machine circuits backed by regular software updates, has a presence in 13 European countries as well as the US.

Speaking on the new appointment, Daniel Donhauser, eGym chief commercial officer, said: “Eric brings with him extensive experience and will continue to support eGym in its mission to challenge the way fitness is delivered, disrupting markets and pushing the boundaries of possibility.”

Jeremy Jenkins, UK sales director, Kerstin Obenauer, UK head of implementation, and Tracy Lamond, UK marketing manager, will all report directly to Wenig, who will share his time between the UK and eGym’s headquarters in Munich.

UK head Michaelis will leave the firm at the end of the month and return home to Germany because of personal issues.

On departing, Michaelis said: “I have been on an incredible journey with eGym and it is very difficult for me to say goodbye. Bringing a disruptive technology to market is always a challenge but also highly rewarding when it begins to truly influence the way business is conducted. eGym has spent the last couple of years helping the industry to understand the opportunities technology and digitalisation have to offer and now the focus moves from education to implementation.”
