40 years of expertise serving brands
Herbert Schorn decided to become a consultant to French SMEs in Germany. He put together a comprehensive portfolio of all the services that a French company needs in connection with exporting its products to Germany and vice-versa.
September 1989
Herbert Schorn teamed up with what was at that time the third-largest banking group in France (CIC - Credit Industriel de Commerce) to open a consultancy office in Krefeld. The bank then appointed Herbert Schorn as its authorised representative and his client base was extended to include the bank’s customers.
Thomas Schorn joined the Franco-German consultancy firm as consultant to Roche Bobois International. From 2000 to mid-2003 his role was Managing Director in Germany.
Until Herbert Schorn’s death, father and son worked together on the development of concepts, positioning and marketing of French consumer products in Germany and German consumer products in France.
