PlugVan Team

Jörg Kortmann, CEO

Jörg Kortmann

For more than 20 years Jörg has been passionately enjoying holidays in his own camping buses, which he himself has optimised for his own requirements - among other things, 3 children had to be "built in" over the years. "Besides the holidays" he has been dealing with logistics and manufacturing processes for 20 years before founding PlugVan. Dream destination: First Madagascar and then later something more exotic.

Florian Fey, CMO

Florian Fey

Whether 5,000 km through Chile or once across Scandinavia - Florian has been travelling in a camper since his childhood and knows everything that mobile travelling has to offer, from the small camper to the fully integrated vehicle. In addition, Florian has a lot of enthusiasm for digital marketing. Dream destination: from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego by camper


Max Müller, Production and Quality

Max Müller

Max has discovered his passion for camping in Australia in 2016. There he has travelled many thousands of kilometres in various vehicles, some of which he built himself. Besides he is very interested in Tiny Houses. As a trained industrial mechanic, Max is also our "screwdriver". Dream destination: with his Nissan Micra (35 PS!) to Mongolia.

Nico Sachse, IT-Guru

Nico Sachse

Nico gets nervous quickly when camping if he doesn't have Internet. He also likes to question the old - and knows how to put it into something new. The implementation of PlugVan Connect was therefore perfect for him. Dream destination: Singapore (they should also have fast internet)

Kathrin Cirksena, Marketing

Kathrin Cirksena

Kathrin studies primary education in Berlin and cannot imagine a life without climbing, windsurfing, camping and good coffee.

At PlugVan Kathrin supports the marketing. Her dream destination: Yosemite National Park (for big wall climbing).

René Kalaß, Globetrotter

Luise Göttel, Marketing

Luise Göttel

Luise studies Romance Philology in Potsdam and tries to learn other languages which she can use while travelling all over the world. Very important for her: Spanish.

Michelle Kuhn, Sales

Already for longer time, he would like to work in a start-up and for him “PlugVan offers the ideal product that combines leisure and sustainability“. In the field of online marketing, he wants to grow with us.
