Stephan Hohmann is the CEO of HANRO, where he has worked for more than 10 years. He loves the quality and the style of HANRO’s underwear, nightwear and loungewear, as well as the way the products are made, with fabrics developed and manufactured in-house at the HANRO headquarters in Europe. Stephen loves to travel and visits London regularly – to see the world famous shops (especially the HANRO Boutique), meet partners, HANRO staff and talk to customers.
Stephen is a big fan of London, a city where he studied for one year, and his daughter lived for two years. He absolutely adores discovering the latest things the city has to offer, up and coming areas, new stores and its hidden corners.
