Stefan Scheiber, CEO of Bühler. 
UZWIL, SWITZERLAND — Stefan Scheiber officially started as chief executive officer (CEO) of Bühler on July 1. His appointment to the position was announced nearly a year ago on July 9, 2015. 

Scheiber succeeds Calvin Grieder, who will focus on his role as chairman of the board.

“In order to continue the success story of Bühler, we want to seize the opportunities of accelerated change presented by megatrends such as digitization, safe feed and food, and sustainability,” said Scheiber. 

As a result of this change, additional executive positions in the Grains & Food business have been reassigned.

Scheiber has been with the solution provider for industrial process technologies since 1988. In 1999, he took over worldwide responsibility for the Brewery and Rice business units, then the entire responsibility for Bühler in Germany. 

He became a member of the company’s corporate management from mid-2005, when he was appointed head of the Sales & Services business, which included 43 affiliates and numerous branch offices in more than 140 countries. From 2009, he led the Food Processing business. In 2014, he brought together the two business units of Food Processing and Grain Processing and has since then functioned as CEO of Grains & Food activities. 

“With our portfolio of solutions and our global presence in over 140 countries, we are strongly positioned in the important growth markets of food and mobility,” said Scheiber. “The aim now is to transform this position into further profitable growth.”

Calvin Grieder, who has been serving as CEO since 2000 and additionally acted as chairman of the board of Bühler since 2014, will focus on his position as chairman. 

Johannes Wick leads as CEO the Bühler division Grains & Food since April 1.
Johannes Wick took charge as CEO of Grains & Food as of April 1 and is now also a member of Bühler’s executive board. Wick joined the Bühler Group as head of the Grain Milling business unit in 2014.
