Personnel changes within the Leiber Business Unit Animal Nutrition became effective on 1 September 2020. The previous head of business unit, Nikolaus Jungbluth, has decided after 11 years to leave the company on 31 October 2020 in order to tackle a new professional challenge. He has passed the management baton to Helge Jakubowski who had been working in the company since 1 November 2018 as Key Account Manager & Team Leader Sales Germany.
"In the name of the shareholders and the entire Leiber Team, I thank Herr Jungbluth for the successful development of the Business Unit Animal Nutrition within Leiber“, said CEO Bernd Schmidt-Ankum. “We wish him all the best and hope he has success both professionally and personally. At the same time, we are pleased to have found Herr Jakubowski to fill this position and thereby allow the seamless continuation of the work carried out there."
Helge Jakubowski responded: "I am looking forward to this new professional challenge and will dedicate myself to the continued commitment of Leiber to animal nutrition."
