Finger-food giant Frostkrone has named Roman Wedel as its new chief financial officer.
He will also step in as the second managing director, along with the managing partner of the company, Frédéric Dervieux.
In his new role, Wedel will assist Dervieux to jointly achieve the company’s growth targets.
Commenting on the appointment, Dervieux said, “Our objective is to continue to grow internationally. I am convinced that, with this management team, we are leading Frostkrone Tiefkühlkost GmbH into a successful future.”
An Experienced Professional
Wedel has been associated with the company since 2009, when he served as a controller.
Over the years, he handled several important roles in the organisation before being appointed as the commercial director in 2014.
He graduated from the University of Bielefeld, in Germany, and worked as a controller at Frost & Frisch Convenience GmbH before joining Frostkrone.
“I am looking forward to taking on more responsibility in the company in my new role as CFO. In recent years, already I have been able to actively participate in the company’s positive development,” Wedel said.
Innovation And Expertise
Frostkrone has stood for innovation and expertise in the frozen-food sector for more than 20 years.
This reflects in its sales figures, which have risen convincingly for years now.
Frostkrone’s products are available throughout Europe, including Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Great Britain, Switzerland, Austria, and Eastern Europe.
The company, from Rietberg, also exports to Russia and the USA.
In April 2017, Frostkrone became a part of the Munich-based investment company EMERAM Capital Partners GmbH consulting funds (‘EMERAM’).
Last year, the company acquired Piz’wich and Varenne Gastronomie, both based in France.
