Bösch Boden Spies Expands Its Management Board

Dr. Philipp Stradtmann appointed Managing Director of Dried Fruit & Nut Sales and Retail


Hamburg, 18 April 2018 – The Hamburg-based food ingredients specialist Bösch Boden Spies is expanding its Management Board: As of June 4, 2018, Dr. Philipp Stradtmann (44) will be responsible for Dried Fruit & Nut Sales and Retail as Managing Director and head the company alongside the Managing Directors and Partners Heinz-Ulrich Bösch (66), Michael Rund (52) and Dirk Schmidt (47).

“By expanding our Management Board, we are responding to the dynamic growth of recent years, as well as the rapidly changing requirements of our suppliers, customers and markets,” says Schmidt.

In the future, Rund, who is handing over part of his current management responsibilities to Stradtmann, will – in addition to his responsibility for the Logistics division – concentrate entirely on managing the Product Application & Development and Marketing & Business Development divisions. The focus will be on further developing the product portfolio and the supply strategy.

Stradtmann’s appointment will also strengthen the Dried Fruit & Nut and Retail departments. Together with Mirko Rybin (42, Director Dried Fruit and Nut Ingredients) and Henning Brandt (50, Director Retail and Member of the Management Board), Stradtmann will continue the positive development of recent years and provide new impetus.

Before joining Bösch Boden Spies, Stradtmann was Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Managing Director of the KOB Group, a globally market-leading SME in the development and manufacture of elastic textiles. Prior to that, he held various management positions in the Oetker Group’s Food division for more than 10 years.
