Germany – Philipp Lorenz to replace Lars Rogge as Managing Director of Bally Wulff

By - 24 September 2020

Lars Rogge is leaving Bally Wulff of his own accord on December 31 2020. As Spokesman of the Management Board, he was responsible in particular for national and international sales activities, marketing/PR, product management, order management and technical service.

He will be succeeded by Philipp Lorenz, who is moving from XTiP Sportwetten Vertrieb GmbH to the Berlin-based manufacturer of gaming machines. In addition to his managerial duties, Lars Rogge represented the company in gaming machine industry associations as managing board member of the association Verband der Deutschen Automatenindustrie e.V. (VDAI) and board member of the umbrella organisation Die Deutsche Automatenwirtschaft e.V. (DAW).

Ulrich Schmidt shared some kind words: “I would like to particularly thank Lars Rogge for our excellent, successful and ever-trustworthy working relationship, which I always really appreciated. Some time ago, he told me that he wanted to make a change for personal reasons. Lars Rogge joined the company in 2013. During his time at the company, BALLY WULFF has continued to develop into an established and reliable market player and producer of high-quality gaming equipment thanks to constant innovation. We have achieved great things together and a large part of this positive development is down to Lars Rogge. I wish my long-time companion Lars all the best for the future and, above all, I hope that he achieves all of his wishes and goals with this new step.

“It has been a great pleasure to work on making BALLY WULFF a success with so many talented, motivated and inspiring colleagues. Our success was only possible together. I particularly appreciated the professional freedom I was given and the unrestricted trust of Ulrich Schmidt. I will, of course, continue to carry out all my tasks with enthusiasm until I leave, but I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my colleagues for our inspiring and successful working relationship at BALLY WULFF”, says Lars Rogge about his exit.

His successor has already been appointed. Thomas Niehenke introduces the new colleague: “We are fortunate to have Philipp Lorenz, a seasoned and successful sales director, as successor. Philipp Lorenz will start his new position on 01 November 2020. After holding management positions in various companies, Philipp Lorenz has been responsible for the activities of XTiP Sportwetten as Managing Director Sales/Marketing over the past few years. Based on Philipp’s industry-related experience and building on Lars Rogge’s achievements, the transition of management responsibility is sure to be successful. We are looking forward to a great collaboration”.
