As of September 1, 2017, the new manager for sales and marketing for the entire business area Grain Milling is Martin Ellegast.
The 37-year old holds an engineering degree in mechanical engineering/process engineering and an Executive MBA.
Already during his studies at the University of Applied Sciences in Constance, he became acquainted with Bühler as an intern and wrote his thesis about the company.
He has been permanently employed at Bühler since 2005.
Ellegast got to know the company from the bottom up, first in project management in Grain Milling, then in Bühler Yokohama/Japan during a two-year stay abroad, followed by sales for England and South Asia.
In 2015 he took over the management of the business unit Bakery & Ingredient Handling.
The current move to manager of sales and marketing in the business area Grain Milling will allow Ellegast to combine his knowledge of a graduated engineer with his MBA skills in marketing and sales in an ideal way.
Martin Ellegast grew up near Lake Constance in Constance, Germany where he also studied and now lives with his wife and three children.
As a “lakey”, he is a passionate sailor who has been successfully sailing in top world rankings for years.
Today he still enjoys the Lake Constance as well as nearby skiing areas in Switzerland with his family.
