Change in Sales Management: Björn Dräger takes over at Carl Walther

Björn Dräger will take over sales at Carl Walther GmbH in Ulm on Jan. 1, 2023, succeeding Sebastian Steinmetz, who is moving back to Frankonia.

Björn Dräger (52) is an experienced industry professional. In addition to a sales position at B&T AG Thun (Switzerland) - a specialist for handguns, silencers and gun attachments - Mr. Dräger has worked for several years as a key account manager for the competition and hunting sectors at C.G. Haenel GmbH in Suhl, before focusing his activities on the government market as head of sales. 

At Carl Walther, he now assumes overall responsibility for sales and, in addition, the Defense Sales Division.

Sebastian Steinmetz, who has been with Carl Walther since 2019, first as Head of Sales Competition and since 2020 with overall responsibility for sales, will support the handover until March 31, 2023, and will shape the Competition division until his departure.

Both managers had worked for Frankonia for many years, to which Sebastian Steinmetz is returning in the role of Head of the Frankonia Academy.
