Martin Fuchs to head the German Centre Delhi.Gurgaon

Munich/Stuttgart – On 15 July 2010 Martin Fuchs will become the new manager of the German Centre Delhi.Gurgaon. The German Centre, run jointly by Bayerische Landesbank (BayernLB) and Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW), has been helping German companies to enter the Indian market since its inception in 2008. Mr Fuchs will succeed Nadine Ulrich, who has decided to return to Germany to pursue new challenges.

Martin Fuchs began his career in 2002 in the Cologne office of the German-Indian market developer Maier + Vidorno, where he was principally responsible for assisting German companies in developing a strategy for entering the Indian market. After being promoted to Business Development Manager, Mr Fuchs re-located to Delhi in June 2008 to help companies organise their sales and service operations on site. Mr Fuchs was born in Constance, Germany, in 1977. He is a graduate of the University of Cologne, where he completed his regional studies.

Jan-Christian Dreesen, a member of the BayernLB Board of Management, said: "The German Centre Delhi.Gurgaon has found in Martin Fuchs the ideal successor. He has years of experience in planning and organising business operations for German companies in India, and he’s lived in Delhi for two years now. The German Centre, its tenants and its visitors all stand to profit from his contacts, his knowledge and his intercultural savvy. We look forward to the good teamwork that lies ahead as we are convinced of India’s importance as an emerging market for the Mittelstand.”

Peter A. Kaemmerer of LBBW’s Board of Managing Directors took a look back at the German Centre’s beginnings in India with the comment: "We thank Nadine Ulrich for her excellent work and wish her all the best in her future endeavours. She made the German Centre in Delhi a dependable first port of call for German Mittelstand companies looking to enter the Indian market – and that in a time of economic turbulence. The Centre’s occupancy rate and customer base grew especially fast over the past months.”

With its fully-equipped, 26-plus-square-metre offices located near Indira Gandhi International Airport, the German Centre Delhi.Gurgaon provides consultation and many other services. Through the contact it maintains with institutions and public authorities, and by organising special programmes of its own, the German Centre allows for quick access to India’s networks. The companies located in the Centre also benefit from the platform it provides for sharing information.

The German Centre Delhi.Gurgaon is part of the German Centre network, which consists of offices in Jakarta, Mexico City, Beijing, Shanghai and Singapore, with an office in Moscow soon to be opened. The network is supported by German federal and state ministries and national associations.
