Lars Gorissen named as Speaker of the Executive Board at Nordzucker

The Nordzucker Group has a new Speaker of the Executive Board: as of 1 March 2018, Lars Gorissen will be taking over at the helm of the company.

“I am looking forward to my new role and working together with a strong team,” says Lars Gorissen. Formerly Chief Agricultural Officer, he is taking over as Speaker of the Executive Board in an era of liberalization in the EU sugar market – an era that will have a profound impact on markets, prices and beet cultivation. He underlines that, “We will resolutely defend and build upon our position as a profitable leader in the European market – and seize the growth opportunities available to us on the global market.”

Lars Gorissen joined Nordzucker in 2008 and has led the Nordzucker agricultural sector since February 2014. A doctor of law, he will also be responsible for the Business Development, Communications & Public Affairs, Data Protection, Human Resources, Internal Audit and Legal departments in his new role from 1 March.

Lars Gorissen is the successor of Hartwig Fuchs, who stepped down from the company for personal reasons on 28 February 2018.
