Bösch Boden Spies as your full-service partner for high-quality fruit and nut ingredients with worldwide activities has seen rapid growth in recent years. Together with our employees and business partners, we have successfully developed our markets and product segments. To consequently continue and further develop this growth path we as the partners of Bösch Boden Spies have decided to expand our company’s senior management.


We are pleased that Dr. Philipp Stradtmann will be joining us as an additional member of the Management Board starting June 4, 2018. He will take over responsibility for the further development of Dried Fruit and Nut Industry and Retail Sales from Michael Rund. Besides being in charge of the logistics department, Michael Rund will in future focus on the further development of the product portfolio and supply strategy, as the General Manager for Product Application & Development and Marketing & Business Development. This will ensure that we can continue to successfully and innovatively meet the rapidly changing requirements of our suppliers, customers and markets going forward.

Mirko Rybin and Henning Brandt will continue to be responsible for the Dried Fruit and Nut Industry resp. the Retail Sales departments. Both have successfully expanded their areas in recent years and contributed to the overall success of the company. Over the last 15 years they both have developed a trustful relationship with the stakeholders of our business. They will work with Dr. Stradtmann to continue this positive development.

Dr. Stradtmann most recently served CEO and Managing Director of the KOB Group, a globally market-leading medium-sized company in the development and manufacture of elastic textiles. Prior to that, he spent ten years in successive management positions in the food divisions of the Oetker Group. Dr. Stradtmann brings with him many years of experience in the international B2B client business and is well-versed in the management of various strategic challenges, in particular the structuring of growth, the realignment of business processes, and the sustainable development of new lines of business.

We are pleased to have gained in Dr. Philipp Stradtmann an internationally experienced and entrepreneurially motivated leader who knows the food industry very well from many years of experience, and is also familiar with the special entrepreneurial culture and values of a family business like Bösch Boden Spies. We are convinced that together with Dr. Stradtmann, we can successfully continue our growth strategy and set new impulses so that we can keep successfully meeting the growing challenges of the markets.

We look forward to a good and successful cooperation with Dr. Stradtmann and thank you for being our valued business partner.
