January 13, 2012

New regional presence, other changes for the company.

Lipotec has increased its presence in the US through the establishment of Lipotec LLC, amove that’s in tune with the company’s strategy of expansion and commitment to the marketplace.

With immediate effect, Lipotec LLC, based in Jersey City, NJ, will manage full-scale operations for the US market, enabling Lipotec to deal with regional partners and clients locally.

Lipotec has been active in the US cosmetic market for more than 20 years through its exclusive distributor Centerchem, Inc., with whom it will continue to work closely.

Full operations management of Lipotec LLC will be responsibility of Domenico Palella, who has been internally promoted to general manager. Palella joined Lipotec in 2008 and early in 2009 was appointed to managing director of Lipotec Srl, the firm’s subsidiary in Italy. His extensive knowledge of the industry and his business expertise make him an outstanding choice to head the new office team, according to the firm.

“We are confident and excited about the possibilities of collaborating on a day-to-day basis with our US customers,” said Dr. Juan Carlos Escudero, CEO of Lipotec. “We look forward to developing with them specific and exclusive projects”.

Contact details for Lipotec LLC are 2500 Plaza 5 Harborside Financial Center,Jersey City, NJ 07311; Tel: (201) 633-4662; Fax:+1 (201) 484-7201;

There have been other changes at Lipotec's operations in Germany and France, including key leadership appointments and an office relocation.

In addition, Lipotec has appointed J.M Cabello as the new CEO for Lipotec GmbH, the company’s subsidiary for the German, Austrian and Dutch markets. Cabello joined Lipotec GmbH in 2010 as sales manager.
Wolfgang Schueller, former CEO of Lipotec GmbH, has been appointed key account coordinator for Lipotec.

Due to the rapid growth of business and operations over the past two years, Lipotec GmbH has moved from Dusseldorf to a new corporate office in Frankfurt. The new facilities will enhance operational efficiency and will help to support the partners’ needs while reinforcing the company’s commitment to Central Europe. The new address of Lipotec GmbH is Nassaustrasse 3; 65719 Hofheim-Wallau; Tel: +(49) 612.253.89.90; Fax: +(49) 612.; E-mail:

In other personnel moves, Lipotec has promoted Elena Cañadas to managing director of Lipotec SAS, the company’s subsidiary in France. Cañadas joined Lipotec in 2006 and has been marketing director since 2008.

In announcing the new appointment Dr. Escudero added, “The new structure will provide our office in France with the organizational effectiveness necessary to continuously improve services. The new team’s experience will be highly valuable to Lipotec SAS as we move forward into 2012.”
