He succeeds Calvin Grieder, who will focus on his role as Chairman of the Board. “In order to continue the success story of Bu¨hler, we want to seize the opportunities of accelerated change presented by megatrends such as digitization, safe feed and food, and sustainability,” said Stefan Scheiber at the occasion of the CEO handover. As a result of this change, additional executive positions in the Grains & Food business have been reassigned.

The appointment of Stefan Scheiber stands for continuity and accelerated change at Bu¨hler. Stefan Scheiber (50, Swiss) has been with the solution provider for industrial process technologies since 1988.
