Meeting with Marion Birkel, New Commercial Director Europe at Comeca

Comeca, a company specializing in electrical solutions, is pleased to announce the appointment of Marion BIRKEL as its new Commercial Director Europe. As part of our international development, Marion will be responsible for supporting our company in expanding its market in Europe. We asked Marion a few questions to learn more about her background and motivation for this new challenge.

What Is Your Professional Background?

MB: “First passionate about business development, then about the world of industry, I quickly had the opportunity to combine the two by starting in the defense sector. A daily life driven by technological complexity and a thirst for learning to contribute to the best of my ability to the company’s business development.

In order to persevere in a technical environment, necessary for my professional development, I then joined the world of power conversion. A world where understanding the environment, energy performance and customer service are essential and must be inseparable.

Then, I joined Comeca in 2018 to contribute to the commercial development of our specific offerings in France: defence, scientific and transport.
The European policy to accelerate the energy transition and in particular to promote decarbonized modes of transport has allowed us to invest with confidence. We then created an offer of connected charging points for electric vehicles (Buses, Trucks, Special machines) based on our innovative, sustainable and already proven solutions with many users.

Comeca has thus strengthened its position as a leader by offering a concrete response to environmental issues and actively contributing to the ecological transition of our society. Since then, Comeca has experienced strong growth and a real internal transformation. Once again, it is a collective experience that I am happy to have lived.”

What Are Your Challenges for This New Role?

MB: “Drawing on this experience, I am now called upon to replicate our French success on a European scale and for many markets addressed by Comeca: e-Mobility, green hydrogen, etc.

The challenge will be to write this new chapter in a whole new dimension and to successfully carry out the company transformation that it implies. Driven by entrepreneurial development, I will strive to maintain a balance between achieving our ambitions and mobilizing our teams around a common project: accelerating the development of Comeca in Europe.

Finally, what I like about this new challenge is the important growth challenge and the desire to establish Comeca as a key player in Europe.”

What Are Comeca’s Objectives for Accelerating Its International Development?

MB: “Comeca is already an international player present in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe. We indeed have several sites in France, the United Kingdom and Spain.

My mission, as Commercial Director, is therefore to build on this solid structure, to increase and sustain our deployment by taking advantage of the bright horizon we have in Europe. Our goal is to double our turnover by 2030. We already have several key partners to support us in this growth.

We will continue to implement our new organization to allow our future customers to discover and benefit from Comeca’s expertise. We must do everything possible to increase its visibility.

In 2022 we launched our deployment in Belgium; in 2023 Comeca continues its expansion.”

What Is Your Greatest Achievement?

MB: “My greatest achievement so far is having the opportunity to still share, ten years later, moments of conviviality with the teams that allowed me to win my first deals, through collective work and tenacity.

A necessary professional complicity to write a successful entrepreneurial story and contribute to a winning company culture!”

We warmly thank Marion for sharing her experience and new challenges. Marion’s ideas and advice will be very useful in helping Comeca to continue to develop and remain competitive in the European market. We wish her every success in her new responsibilities!
