D/UK/IRE – After 30 years in the promotional products industry, Uwe Ellermann, Vela’s CEO, is retiring from the active business and is handing over the reins of the company to Maria Hohn. “Even if I will no longer be playing an active role at Vela, I will not be leaving the company completely, but will continue to support the company on its course in an advisory capacity, something which I am looking forward to,” commented Ellermann. “Maria Hohn is taking over my position and I am sure she will take the hearts of the Vela customers by storm.”
