Dirk Mischendahl steps away from Logistik Group

Joint Managing Director and Logistik Group founder, Dirk Mischendahl, is stepping away from the award winning agency after eighteen years at the helm. Joint Managing Director and shareholder James Wilkins will take sole leadership of the company effective immediately.

The move comes after almost twenty years work building Logistik into a top 50 events agency and is the result of a natural growth and development within the business. Mischendahl will be moving on to pursue personal projects within Leeds and continuing his dedication to the area in which he first began Logistik in 1996.

The creative brand communications and event specialists, who work with major FTSE100 companies in all sectors to communicate their internal messaging and strategies across all platforms, are at a crucial moment of expansion. Wilkins becomes the only custodian of the group during a period of significant movement and development as they look to strengthen their already burgeoning communications consultancy wing. This change comes alongside several recent top-level appointments across the business.

Wilkins, who has been with Logistik Group for over ten years, was initially integrated into the agency by Mischendahl to significantly shift their market sharehold and client base.

Logistik Managing Director, James Wilkins, says of the development; ‘It has been a pleasure and an honour working with and learning from Dirk over the past ten years, we have built an incredibly strong friendship and partnership and are intricately entwined in each other’s lives. I am as excited to see what he does next as he is to watch Logistik. 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. 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.’

Logistik Group founder, Dirk Mischendahl, says: ‘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. 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, he is the brother that I never had and the partnership and friendship that we have built in the last ten years will continue.’
