Secure your Future with Red Lion Europe

As a strong brand MB connect line provides you with solutions for Secure Remote Access, IIoT and Industrial Security. We unlock the value of data by developing and manufacturing innovative solutions to access, connect and visualize your information.

Security is our Promise.

Reporting to the Director of Sales Europe, the Sales Area Manager Germany will have overall responsibility for profitable revenue growth in the DACH region. Initial emphasis will be establishing productive and knowledgeable relationships with established OEM accounts in the geography of South Germany and Austria.
