Company founder Erich Erber symbolically handed the keys of the company over to four members of the management board at the closing ceremony of the World Nutrition Forum.
Executive power now officially rests with Andreas Kern, Martin Bednar, Michael Eder and Jan Vanbrabant. Erber retains the position of chairman of Erber Group, which itself comprises in excess of 50 companies.
Having established the company some 30 years ago, Erber has grown Biomin into a global enterprise with a presence in more than 100 countries.
On handing over the over-sized keys, he commented: “We’re all getting older, and it is time for change.”
