Gronau, 02 September 2020 – Dual leadership at Colucci: With immediate effect, Falk Löffler will take over the management of the company and lead it together with Marco Colucci in the future. Furthermore, Judith and Domenico Colucci resign from the management.
The investment on the part of Bakerman in Colucci also requires a change at the executive level. Falk Löffler, who is currently head of sales at Bakerman, will become managing director at Colucci. With his new challenge, Löffler will focus more on optimizing existing business processes and, above all, on the strategic orientation of the company. With the participation of Bakerman in Colucci, the distribution was also transferred to Bakerman. Therefore, Falk Löffler will continue to assume overall responsibility for sales at Bakerman. A native of Gütersloh, he has 11 years of experience in the industry and most recently served as divisional manager “Purchasing Fresh Produce International” at Kaufland, a food retail chain owned by Schwarz Beteiligungs GmbH. Previously, Löffler was sales manager and then head of purchasing and franchise at BackFactory, a subsidiary of Harry-Brot, a German baked goods manufacturer.
Bakerman was founded in 2007 in Gronau and is still owner-managed today. The resulting short decision-making paths, combined with the high level of expertise, have made the company one of the innovation drivers and trendsetters in the industry within 13 years. Today, Bakerman generates sales of 100 million euros with a total of 50 employees at the Gronau site. As a specialist for quality baked goods in the sweet as well as savory area, the company offers, in addition to the classics, above all innovative products with an artisan feel from state-of-the-art production facilities. Since 2020, snacks with vegetarian meat alternatives have rounded out Bakerman’s product line. Certified to IFS “Higher Level” and with many years of experience in the industry, Bakerman accompanies customers at the highest level. Thanks to the expertise of qualified master bakers in the development team, Bakerman can introduce new trend products and respond quickly to individual customer requests. The management today includes Heiko Thees (owner), Marcel Krug (managing director), Friedhelm Leuders (authorized signatory), Falk Löffler (authorized signatory) and Wilhelm Voß (authorized signatory).
