April 1st brought about big change for Messe Frankfurt, as South African managing director, Konstantin von Vieregge, takes up his position in Atlanta as President for Messe Frankfurt North America.

Von Vieregge will be assuming overall managerial responsibility for the North American market, piloting from his new Atlanta headquarters.

Previous President, Dennis Smith, vacated his position as of 31st March 2019 for personal reasons; with Patrick Nohilly remaining behind to continue handling the Finance, IT, Mergers & Acquisitions and Human Resources sectors, all under the new leadership of von Vieregge.

“Over the past three years, Konstantin von Vieregge has demonstrated with great success that he is the right person to lead a growth orientated organisation for the Messe Frankfurt Group. He already has managerial experience in the USA, is very familiar with the culture there and has the marketing, sales and trade fair expertise necessary in the market segments that are relevant for us.”

His replacement for Messe Frankfurt South Africa, will be none other than Joshua Low, which was shortly followed by a complete senior management reshuffle.

“Joshua Low is an acknowledged trade fair expert who previously worked for Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, one of the largest trade fair companies in South Africa.”
