Ronald Kers (pictured), currently CEO of the Müller UK & Ireland Group, will take over the overall responsibility for the Unternehmensgruppe Theo Müller as CEO in 2015. Heiner Kamps, who has been CEO of the Unternehmensgruppe Theo Müller since 2011, will work closely with Kers to ensure a smooth transition up to his agreed retirement in 2015.

Ronald Kers has been CEO for the Müller UK & Ireland Group since January 2012. In this position, he has developed the successful yogurt business Müller Dairy and integrated fresh milk business Müller Wiseman Dairies into the group. Ronald Kers has also played a central role in the acquisition of the Minsterley production site, where Cadbury chilled desserts are manufactured and distributed under license, as well as in the acquisition of NOM Dairy UK in Telford (now TM Telford), which is key to the development of the group’s UK private label yogurt business. Most recently under Ronald Kers’ leadership, Müller entered the British butter market by opening its own butter factory in Market Drayton.

“I am very pleased that we can recognise and promote talent from within the organisation to this position at the top of the management board. We followed the proposal of Heiner Kamps and are convinced that Mr. Kers will successfully continue to lead the Unternehmensgruppe on its growth path,” says Theo Müller, the sole shareholder of the Unternehmensgruppe Theo Müller.

Under the leadership of Heiner Kamps, the Unternehmensgruppe Theo Müller developed from a dairy company with over Eur2 billion in annual turnover and about 5,000 employees into an international food company with an annual turnover of around Eur5 billion and 21,000 employees.
