Sixt creates new sales division for globally operating companies’ individual mobility needs

  • Global Account Management provides tailored solutions for major customers from Sixt’s entire product portfolio
  • Sales successes already recorded in the first half of the year, including new partner Merck

Pullach, July 12, 2018 – Sixt is driving further sales development to globally operating corporate customers. The leading mobility service provider has reorganized its Global Account Management team to advise major customers on the Sixt Group’s comprehensive services, achieving significant improvements in the area of mobility. Customers have a central contact at their disposal who creates individually tailored solutions for car rental, leasing, chauffeur service, ride hailing and mobility management. Sixt will also now offer its customers comprehensive reporting providing numerous benchmarks for the sustainable optimization of the total cost of mobility.

Senior Director Michael Poglitsch (42), who has held several positions for Sixt since 2000, will head the Global Account Management team. He will report directly to Vinzenz Pflanz, Senior Vice President of Group Sales. Under Poglitsch’s leadership, the members of the realigned team, some of whom will operate internationally, will be optimally connected for developing new solutions for major customers.

Sixt has already convinced several new globally active customers of the advantages of its service portfolio with its new sales approach, international science and technology company Merck among them. Sixt is now the preferred mobility partner for Merck employee business trips. The company specifically opted for Sixt because of its holistic, international and tailored mobility concept and its central support for all solutions.

Vinzenz Pflanz, Senior Vice President of Group Sales at Sixt: “The positive response from several major customers shows that our new sales approach is working. Today’s global companies increasingly rely on comprehensive, flexible mobility solutions to help their employees reach their goals cost-effectively. The realigned team in Global Account Management is a key element in offering large corporations exactly the mobility they need at any given time. I am delighted that we have found in Mr. Poglitsch a proven industry expert to head this important area.”
