Joint MD and Logistik Group founder, Dirk Mischendahl has revealed he is to step away from the event agency after eighteen years at the helm. The move will see joint MD and shareholder James Wilkins (pictured) take sole leadership of the company effective immediately. Mischendahl is moving on to pursue personal projects within Leeds. “Logistik has been an enormous part of my life and I am extremely proud of all that it has achieved for myself and its many wonderful employees,” said Mischendahl. "This is an extremely exciting moment for me and my family and I am delighted to be turning my hand to new things as I watch Logistik grow and burgeon from a distance. “It has been a pleasure working with James and I leave knowing that the company I built is in the very best of hands." According to the creative brand communications and event specialist, Logistik Group is at a crucial moment of expansion. This change comes alongside several recent top-level appointments across the business. “This is a truly exciting moment in our history as we look to break new ground and leap into the future of our company whilst playing the due respect and thanks to our past,” said Wilkins. "Dirk built a strong company with all of the right cultural foundations that have helped us to become who we are today and ensured that we have the power to naturally progress. I wish Dirk every success in his future endeavours and look forward to seeing what he does next as we turn this significant page in our own history.” The firm was among leading event industry brands who supported the Sustainable Events Summit earlier this year.
