A new generation takes charge at Strube

Söllingen, 29 August 2013 – On 1 September 2013, the reins will be handed over to a new generation of management at Strube as Dr. Hermann-Georg Strube steps down.


“After 45 years as CEO, the time has come to hand over the reins to the next generation,” in the words of Dr. Hermann-Georg Strube as he bade farewell to the assembled staff in Söllingen. “I am both proud and grateful that my daughter Sina Isabel joined the management team in 2007, which means that since 1877, five generations of our family will have been responsible for running our group,” he pointed out. His wife Eva-Maria Strube is also leaving after more than forty years of service with the company.


From 1 September 2013, the management responsibilities of existing CEO Sina Isabel Strube will shared by her husband Dr. Christian Putensen-Strube and Dr. Christoph Hauser. Thus the tradition of being a family-run business will enter a new phase, while at the same time a senior employee will be promoted to a management role for the first time in the company’s 136-year history.


Dr. Hermann-Georg Strube assumed control of Strube’s commercial operations in 1972, and, with the help of research expertise and innovation, turned the plant-breeding business into a successful, globally operating seed company which now employs a workforce of more than 350. Today, sugar beet, wheat, sunflowers, sweetcorn and peas are cultivated from its seeds in 35 different countries. Although the 75-year-old would now like to spend more time with his family and his equestrian pursuits, he and his wife Eva-Maria Strube will maintain their strong links with the company, both in a representative role and as part of its day-to-day operations.
