  • Corinna Nachtigall (formerly flaconi) is now in the position to strategically develop the home24 brand and to further expand the platform's already very good brand awareness of 57%*

Berlin, 12 October 2021 - home24, a leading home & living online player, is continuously investing in future growth and the expansion of its platform. In order to offer its customers the best possible shopping experience, the Berlin-based e-commerce company is increasingly focusing on the expansion of its curated assortment, particularly in home textiles and accessories that drive traffic to the online shop and lead to more frequent purchases. Furthermore, home24 is sharpening its brand identity and awareness. As part of this strategic focus and to strengthen its team, home24 has now made new appointments to relevant key positions.

Niels Nüssler has been hired as SVP Commercial. As an experienced manager and executive, Niels Nüssler possesses not only relevant knowledge of e-commerce business models, but also expertise in assortment and marketplace development. Before joining home24, Niels Nüssler was the CEO of several online businesses: the online market leader for fabrics and textiles, FabFab; the design shopping club, MONOQI; and the marketplace for handmade products, DaWanda. He also co-founded dinner-for-dogs.com and the lingerie brand change.com, and thus brings extensive knowledge of the retail sector to home24. As SVP Commercial, one of his main goals is expanding the product range to offer customers a broader and even more relevant selection.

He will be supported by Lina Strahlke, who also has been newly recruited, in her role as Director Category Management. Lina Strahlke previously also worked at the home & lifestyle e-commerce company MONOQI, where she most recently filled the role of Head of Buying. She is joining home24 with significant experience in the fields of sales, sales management, assortment and design of decoration items, home textiles and furniture.

In addition to the assortment, brand awareness is crucial for home24 to succeed in the mass market. In the home & living segment, the end customer is often not familiar with any manufacturer brands and rather trusts the retailer brand. For this purpose, it is important for home24 to strengthen its brand identity and to emphasize the key differentiators of the brand compared to its competitors. Therefore, the company has created a new position as Director Brand and hired Corinna Nachtigall. She comes to home24 with over 15 years of experience in both corporate and agency settings, including three and a half years as Managing Director of a full-service communications and creative agency with a digital focus. Before joining home24, she worked for the online shop flaconi. In her role as Brand and Communications Director, she was in charge of the strategic development, the repositioning and successful redesign of the brand. At the same time, she was also responsible for the conception and implementation of integrated and cross-functional brand and image campaigns.

"Our new colleagues Lina, Corinna and Niels are very experienced in developing assortments and brands while always keeping an eye on recent consumer trends. They are strengthening our team in our most important differentiating areas: our broad, curated assortment for an individual home and in making home24 a destination brand that customers trust." says Marc Appelhoff, CEO of home24.
