Kainjoo Executive Board of Directors is announcing that from January first 2017, Alexander Imhoff is stepping down from his position of leadership at Kainjoo and from his role as a Creative Director at KJ. Astate.
Alexander contributed many years to the success of the Creative Studio Astate since 2007 before the merging with Kainjoo SA in 2015. His professionalism and his business-first approach to problems made him the leader he is today in the Creative Space.
The startup RDPQ SàRL holding e-commerce site www.lesroisdupq.ch is going well and with it, its co-founder Alexander is jumping 100% on-board of the newly built company to take it to new levels. As a reminder, Les Rois du PQ was a spin-off from the KJ. Ventures Lab in 2015, with the purpose of disrupting the toilet paper market, into a fun online buying premium experience.
Impact and evolution of KJ. Astate
At the same time, following the evolution of the market, Kainjoo SA with its evolution decided to move its graphical design operational activities to near-shore execution in Ukraine, Hungary and Algeria to optimise the production value chain. This re-structuration is impacting our teams in Switzerland, with re-conversions into project managers roles to pilot external resources. With a new model optimised for scalability to answer the volume of key accounts, Kainjoo will keep the Creative Direction close to home, aligned with the other strategic consulting positions. Alex’s position will be replaced by a new managing director for the Branding Studio KJ. Astate, supported by a network of Creative and Artistic directors. In the meantime, Haider Alleg, Managing Director of the Kainjoo Group is appointed in the interim as the new leader for the day to day activities.
In his new role, Alexanders will continue to support Kainjoo on an ad-hoc basis as an external consultant with defined missions to smooth his exit.
