This week we will present you the newest member of CORE’s Executive Committee. He is ambitious, passionate, reliable, friendly, likes football, from Germany, a father , CEO of LEMARIT and what else see in the following interview:


.САЙТ and .ОНЛАЙН domains: Hi Martin, you have an interesting family name? Does it have a translation in English? From where is it origin?

Martin Kuechenthal: Hi, thanks for inviting me for this interview.
And thank you for finding my family name interesting, most people just find it complicated ;-) especially outside of Germany.
Actually the name “K?chenthal” or in ASCII “Kuechenthal” is a quite old German family name and as far as I know all people with this name are part of the same family tree. Directly translated it means “kitchen valley”, which is funny but does not make so much sense. One serious explanation for the origin means “to look down to the valley“, but I am not 100% sure.


You can see a “beautiful” address everywhere
