Management

 

Economist Marc Forquignon, state-certified optician Thomas Bauer and MBA Ling Fan-Montzka are the general managers of 4Care GmbH. All three of them held senior management positions at 4Care for several years before joining the executive board, and they have many years of experience in the optical industry. At 4Care, they are striving for strong growth in the online shopping and B2B sectors, als well as for the development of new sales channels.

The team, consisting of three managing directors, brings value-based leadership and brand management to 4Care, endowing the company with the diligence, agility and competence that its customers and business partners demand. They see their corporate responsibility as much more than fulfilling corporate objectives, but rather as a personal social responsibility to local and international projects to protect children and youngsters.
