The AGRAVIS Group is setting the course for successful and customer-oriented growth. Bernd Schmitz will become the new head of feed at AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG by November 1, 2019 at the latest - and thus supplements the area management with Dr. Elke Müller-Mußmann and Jürgen Wortmann. On the one hand, this step ensures that the course is set early, and on the other continuity in the further development of the animal feed sector, as Jürgen Wortmann leaves the company at the end of the year due to his age.
The 57-year-old mixed feed expert Schmitz returns to the agricultural trading and service company, where he held various executive positions until February 2015, including managing director of AGRAVIS Mischfutter Westfalen GmbH and AGRAVIS Mischfutter Emsland GmbH. Currently, Schmitz is responsible for the feed business at ATR Landhandel, the largest compound feed producer in the northeast. "I am happy to come back to Münster with my family. Of course, I also have respect for the tasks ahead of us, to keep the compound feed organization fit for the coming challenges. But with a good crew and a stable ship you can get out in any weather and go upwind, "says Schmitz.
In his new role as divisional director, he will be responsible for the entire compound feed business of AGRAVIS. "Bernd Schmitz is a expert of AGRAVIS as well as cooperative customers and above all the compound feed business. We look forward to working together and relying on his competence and commitment in our cooperative world ", explains Dr. Dirk Köckler, CEO of AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG. Schmitz succeeds Sönke Voss, who has left
Company. Dr. Dirk Köckler thanks Sönke Voss for his successful work and the positive course of action in the highly competitive compound feed market.
