Austria Pet Food is expanding its management team with Andreas Obermayr as of October 1, 2023.

Andreas Obermayr will join the Austria Pet Food team as the second managing director and Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) starting October 1, 2023, and will lead the company alongside Bernd Berghofer in the future.

The native Vorarlberger was most recently responsible for the national sales area and export business to the adjacent CEE region as Managing Director for Griesson - de Beukelaer Österreich. Prior to that, he held various positions in sales at Römerquelle and Coca-Cola.

Bernd Berghofer, Managing Director of Austria Pet Food, said: "I am really pleased that we have succeeded in winning Andreas Obermayr, an absolute expert in the Austrian consumer goods industry. With all his competence and experience, he will make a significant contribution to the further development of Austria Pet Food into one of the leading European pet food producers.

Andreas Obermayr commented on his new role: "Since its inception, Austria Pet Food has rapidly become an important and dynamic provider of pet food in Central Europe. We have big plans ahead, and I am very excited to contribute to the company's further growth and success."

Ten years ago, Austria Pet Food GmbH started production of high-quality canned wet pet food at its newly built facility in Pöttelsdorf. Since then, almost 1 billion cans have been filled and sold worldwide. The company is now one of the flagship industrial enterprises in Burgenland. This year, a turnover of approximately 52 million is targeted, and the site now employs nearly 100 people. Behind Austria Pet Food is an investor group consisting of Athena Burgenland Beteiligungen AG, Pet Food Holding GmbH & Co KG, Mr. Otto Bruckner, Mühldorfer Nutrition AG, and management.
