More about Michael Schlenke


My area of specialization is the development and implementation of strategies which capitalize on the opportunities provided by demographic change.  


During my over twenty years of experience in the furniture and appliance industry, I have maintained a focus on the specific needs for the accommodation and care of the elderly. As a head of international sales, business development and a general manager, I have been responsible for markets throughout Europe and abroad. In the process, I have become an expert in international sales and marketing strategies.  The Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Germany have been at the center of my professional focus.

In 2013, I founded the consulting firm, The Caretakers. Today, we advise clients on how to enter the growing healthcare market and provide consulting services to medical device manufacturers. I am an expert in universal design and a member in the German Association of Specialized Journalists. I speak German, English, and Dutch.
