The Frostkrone Food Group has appointed Matthias Bross as Chief Operating Officer (COO) with immediate effect. Bross will be responsible for the management, control, and organization of the entire supply chain management system within the Frostkrone Food Group. It will also be his task to boost the harmonization of internal processes within the company.
Bross has held senior executive positions in the foodstuffs sector for over 20 years. He began his career as a food technologist at Weihenstephan (a German firm specializing in dairy products). After moving to the Nestlé Group, he worked mainly in the ice-cream division as a product developer and internal adviser on the subject of increasing productivity – a position which included time spent at the European locations of Italy, Denmark, and Finland. Most recently, in his role as plant manager, he was responsible for the Nestlé/Thomy production facility in Basel, Switzerland.
“Matthias Bross marries together profound knowledge gained from many years as an executive manager at a large international concern with his good, solid, down-to-earth attitude and his willingness to roll up his sleeves and get to work. It is exactly these strengths that are now needed at the rapidly burgeoning Frostkrone Food Group,” said Frédéric Dervieux, managing partner of the Frostkrone Group.
Bross will also be spearheading the project group responsible for the integration of the Frostkrone Food Group.
“The Frostkrone Food Group is growing rapidly and has ambitious aims tailored to suit such a fast pace of development. That is why it is crucial to speedily unite the extremely productive individual companies to form a large corporate group in which synergies and networks can be optimally and efficiently exploited,” Bross explained.
