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)

Leonard Rentsch, Hardware Developer

Leonard Rentsch

Leonard is a passionate hobbyist and has already ridden his motorbike and tent up to the Nordkap. He studies mechatronics in Berlin and supports the further development of on-board technology at PlugVan, especially with the product PlugVan Connect. His next big dream destination is to ride his motorcycle all the way to Singapore.  

Yunmin Jo, Designer

Yunmin Jo

Yunmin studies Industrial Design at the HTW Berlin. As a designer he needs a lot of fresh air and inspiration to organize his thoughts and to be able to think creatively. Traveling is a good (if not the best) method for this. In his home country South Korea there are many campsites - even centrally in the cities. His secret tip: a camping site at the "Han" river -there you have an unforgettable view. Dream destination: travelling across Asia with his own camper.  

Ferdinand Bauer, Purchasing

Ferdinand Bauer

Ferdinand jumped on the "VanLife" train four years ago. He likes food, culture, travel and old cars. Since 2018 he is in the restoration of his Mercedes van (T2n 609D year 1988), but is interrupted by his studies of automotive economy and his vacations. At PlugVan he supports in purchasing and assembly. His next dream destination: Across Africa

Kathrin Cirksena, Marketing

Kathrin Cirksena

Kathrin studies primary education in Berlin and cannot imagine a life without climbing, windsurfing, camping and good coffee. Travelling whether by tent, bus, bike or on foot gives her energy for her everyday life. In nature she finds serenity and simplicity - something she often lacks in the hectic big city. At PlugVan Kathrin supports the marketing. Her dream destination: Yosemite National Park (for big wall climbing).

René Kalaß, Globetrotter

Rene Kalaß

René spent two years travelling around the world with his MagirusDeutz MD130D9. It was built in 1984 and he he calls his vehicle "Hummel". He has many years of experience in the development of electric vehicles. With us he takes over the subject of electrical installation.
