Bettcher Industries has appointed a new managing director of its European subsidiary, Bettcher GmbH, based in Dierikon in Switzerland.
René T. Hansen has been with Bettcher Industries since July 2018, working as international sales manager for Bettcher Gmbh. With more than 30 years in the protein business, he worked as product manager at Nemco for 13 years and before that as a consultant at the Danish Meat Research Institute.
Mr Hansen said it was an honour to be promoted to managing director. “Coming from a position as international sales manager within the Bettcher family gives me a good insight and a solid foundation to run the business,” he said.
“The last year, we have been through unprecedented times, for life in general and for the meat industry in particular. Being agile and adaptive to these threats, are key factors today. The Bettcher team is a veteran organisation with a lot of experience, outstanding performance, showing strong leadership and a world class service,” he added.
