Dirk Engehausen (CEO)

Long before Dirk Engehausen came to Schleich (where, among other things, he is responsible for dispatching play figures to all corners of the world), he was a naval officer. Then, in 1994, he began his career in the toy industry at Lego. After holding positions in sales and marketing, in 2004 he was given responsibility for the Central and Southern Europe region, and then in 2012 took charge of the company’s European operations and joined the Lego Group board. After a foray into the consumer goods sector as the sales director at Tchibo, he returned to the toy industry as CEO of the Schleich Group in early 2015.
In his current position, Dirk is primarily responsible for the marketing, strategic business development, North American sales, HR, quality management, technology, master data and project & innovation management departments.
