Eckhart Leptien brings more in-depth expertise to Access2

Access2 is delighted to announce that Dusseldorf-based Eckhart Leptien is joining its team as Business Development Manager, Export Sales.

With a depth of experience that few can match and extensive networks within the Architectural Ironmongery industry, Eckhart is a superb fit for a business that serves clients the world over.

Formerly with a leading German lock manufacturer, Eckhart’s understanding of lever handles, locks, hinges and panic devices is a perfect complement to Access2’s strength in masterkey systems and cylinders. Initially, Eckhart will focus on the Middle East, but as Covid restrictions ease and international markets open up again, his reach will extend into South East Asia.

Although Eckhart describes himself as a stereotypical, middle-aged man with both a Labrador and a Harley, he is a thorough professional. With his strong previous links to both the GAI and ARGE (European Federation of Associations of Locks & Builders Hardware Manufacturers), he has successfully balanced positive relationships with his peers while working within a highly competitive industry.

Access2’s Sales Director Clint Robertson said, “I am certain that Eckhart will strengthen our position in the export market and I’m looking forward to working alongside him in an industry we’re both passionate about.”
