Andreas Herzog (61), who has held the CFO position for 17 years, will retire for age reasons effective September 1, 2019. His successor is Mark Macus (47), who was employed at Bühler before for five years and who currently serves as CFO of the Vitra Group.
Andreas Herzog has made a substantial contribution to professionalizing and globalizing the financial organization of Bühler. “Withdrawing from the CFO position of Bühler after 17 years is an emotional moment for me. Bühler is a unique organization, in which the family spirit is still alive. But the company must renew itself permanently, and this also impacts my own function,” says Andreas Herzog. In the future, Herzog plans to devote his time and energy to various board mandates and to supporting Bühler in its efforts to develop new business models and its commitment to start-ups. “We thank Andy cordially for his untiring and passionate commitment, to which Bühler owes much of its success,” says Chairman of the Board Calvin Grieder. Mark Macus will take charge of the CFO function of Bühler effective September 1, 2019. Aged 47, married and a father of three, Mark Macus holds a PhD degree (Dr. oec HSG) from the University of St. Gallen and is a certified auditor.
