Greif Strengthens Commercial Team in Germany with New Appointments

Date: 2019-02-20

Greif is excited to announce the recent appointments of Sven Henigschmidt and Marco Mostert as area sales managers for Greif Germany.

Sven Henigschmidt will be based out of Greif’s steel drum production facility in Hamburg, focusing on serving customers in the northern portions of Germany.  Marco Mostert will be based in Cologne and is responsible for a range of clients across Germany. Mostert and Henigschmidt are rejoining Greif following time outside of the company.

“Sven and Marco’s appointments are in direct response to growing market opportunities in Germany,” said Christoph Ehling, Greif sales manager in Germany. “Both bring a vast wealth of industrial experience and strong relationships with customers and decision makers. Their appointments will strengthen the commercial reach of Greif’s team, helping to both stimulate and grow new business while also servicing the important needs of our existing customers. While Greif has many strengths, including its diverse product portfolio and geographic footprint, we know it is our skilled people and our valuable customer relationships which ultimately underpins our success.”

These key appointments follow several new additions to the Commercial team in Germany in recent months. Bernhard Hofmann was appointed to area sales manager and Sophie Hammermeister has joined as sales manager for reconditioning, as Greif continues to attract industry leading talent to support its ambitious growth plans.

Greif operates four production facilities across Germany in Cologne, Hamburg, Mendig and Huckelhoven. Its product portfolio includes steel drums and IBC’s serving customers in the chemical, lubricants, food and beverage and pharmaceutical markets.

Greif is a global leader in industrial packaging products and services strategically positioned with more than 200 operating locations situated across over 40 countries.
