New family members – new structures and opportunities
Phytobiotics restructures the sales team for Central and Northern Europe.
European countries are as diverse and varied as they are individual. In order to provide European customers with individual and optimal support, Phytobiotics is reorganizing its sales team and divides the European region into three areas: Northern, Central and Southern Europe.
The Northern and Central European team is headed by KlaasJan Krijgsheld as Regional Director Northern Central Europe. KlaasJan, who has been part of Phytobiotics´ sales team for four years also serves the Irish and British customers and is supported by seven dedicated colleagues:
The German-speaking region (DACH: Germany, Austria and Switzerland) is maintained by Karl-Heinz Lachner and his team. As an industry expert and long-time employee, Karl-Heinz is very experienced and knows the market very well. He takes over the sales direction for the DACH region. Hannes Voltenauer, who worked as a feed specialist for dairy cattle at “Keenan” and Key Account Manager Ruminants at “Elanco” joined the team in April 2020. Together with Karl-Heinz, he takes care of the customers in the Southern regions. Titus Böttcher is responsible for the Northern region of German. Titus who worked for “Trouw Nutrition” before, gained a lot of industry knowledge and has a broad network in the agriculture industry. Fourth in the DACH team is Elisabeth Bumann. She is well versed in the feed distribution business and is responsible for the colostrum acquisition and the support of the colostrum suppliers. Learn more about the German speaking team here.
