Sovendus continues to expand its presence in the UK, bringing Peter Smith on board as UK Managing Director, who is an experienced manager from Ve Global UK Ltd. By building up the team in London, the two managing directors Christian Würst and Sebastian Legler intend to continue with Sovendus’ growth strategy and the sustainable expansion of its international business.
The strengthening of the team in the British financial hub is an important step for Sovendus in terms of its internationalisation strategy.

In addition to its headquarters in Karlsruhe, Sovendus also has offices in Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Sweden as well as partner shops in Austria, Belgium, France, Spain, Poland, and Italy.
