Christian Skovhus new Export Sales Manager at Kasthall

Christian Skovhus, former Export Manager at Softline, will now take on the position as new Export Sales Manager at Kasthall. His focus will primarily be on creating growth for Kasthall internationally by developing existing agents and dealer networks in Europe and the United States.


Christian most recent position was at Softline, but he also has vast experience of international sales and business development from other well-known Nordic design companies such as Fritz Hansen, Carl Hansen and HAY. In his previous roles, Christian has built the companies international markets by developing retail and contract networks in collaboration with interior designers and architects.

" Kasthall, as a design company, has a great potential to increase our market shares internationally, and with Christian, we get a person in charge who has made the same journey before with other well-known Nordic brands", says Johan Berg, CEO of Kasthall.

As Export Sales Manager, Christian will be based in Copenhagen but with close contact and frequent visits to Kasthall's head office in Kinna.

" It is with great respect that I take on the job as Export Sales Manager at Kasthall. The company's long history, the solid craftsmanship and the products that are unsurpassed and sought after around the world. I am looking forward to be a part of the continued journey that began 132 years ago by strengthening the global sales organization and introduce more people to Kasthall as a brand", says Christian Skovhus.

Christian, who will start his new position at Kasthall in August, will be an active member of Kasthall's management team. He has executive educations from Copenhagen Business School, ESADE and University of Oxford.

Design and production of rugs and textile flooring

The venerable design brand Kasthall was established in 1889 in Kinna, west of Sweden. Kasthall has become one of the leading rug and textile flooring companies in the world and are represented in 30 countries with showrooms in Stockholm, Milan and New York. Despite Kasthall’s global market presence, all production is carried out at the factory in Kinna where the Kasthall Design Studio also is located. That, together with design collaborations worldwide, gives us the opportunity to create unique rugs for the global interior world. Kasthall offers invaluable craftsmanship with focus on sustainability for both private and public spaces. Kasthall is a purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden.
