Moselland appoints new CEO

19th June, 2014 by db_staff

Moselland, one of Germany’s largest winemaking cooperatives, has appointed a new chief executive.

On 1 July longtime CEO and chairman of the board, Werner Kirchhoff, will step down to make way for his successor Henning Seibert.

In a board meeting held this month, Seibert was elected as the new chairman of the board after his appointment as a board member in early 2014.

Werner Kirchhoff ran Moselland eG for 15 years. In addition to significant investments in quality, Kirchhoff initiated the expansion of Moselland’s
activities beyond the Mosel region.

With the recent joint venture with Weinland Rheingau eG, Moselland initiated a sales and marketing partnership outside of Rhineland-Palatinate state for the first time.

Kirchhoff will act as a consultant to Moselland until the end of 2014.

With 2,200 member growers and more than €75 million in sales, Moselland eG is the largest wine cooperative of Rhineland-Palatinate and one of the largest Riesling producers in the world.
