Frank Nissen becomes new CEO in Ceravis AG


Frank Nissen will become new CEO of Ceravis AG and will replace Thorsten Pogge who leaves the company by the end of April.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors I would like to thank Thorsten Pogge for his relentless efforts,” says Christian Junker, Chairman of the Board of Ceravis AG.

Thorsten Pogge along with his management colleagues and employees have been working tirelessly to modernize Ceravis AG.

“While progress have been made, Ceravis AG is still not where we want it to be. We need to go further in creating a more lean, efficient and specialized organization,” states Christian Junker.

Frank Nissen, who joined Ceravis AG in an executive position in 2016, is ready for the new challenge. He sees Ceravis AG well positioned to become an even stronger partner for German farmers.

“We need to further enhance the performance in the company and become better at showing farmers how we can make a difference for them. I am looking forward to lead these efforts and I am sure that our strong customer focus, our organizational setup and the knowledge of our employees will allow us to expand our position in the North German market,” he says. 

Due to a continuing focus on restructuring activities, Christian Junker expects a challenging year for Ceravis AG in 2017.
