Markus Mühleisen (pictured) is Arla Foods’ new Head of Germany. As Managing Director and Group Vice-President Germany, he will be responsible for Arla Foods’ business in Germany and Austria. He will report to Peter Giørtz-Carlsen, Executive Vice-President and Head of Europe at Arla Foods.

Markus Mühleisen succeeds Winfried Meier. He will be leaving Arla Foods at the end of April 2018. This is a joint decision taken by Winfried Meier and Arla Foods. Until his departure, Winfried Meier will support Markus Mühleisen to ensure a smooth transition.

“With Markus Mühleisen, we will get a seasoned Managing Director onboard, who has led big food brands and teams to success both in Germany and internationally. Markus is a well-versed, culturally astute leader with an impeccable track-record in driving top and bottom line growth in challenging environments. He is perfectly suited to successfully advance our Good Growth Strategy 2020 in Germany,” says Peter Giørtz-Carlsen.

“We want to further accelerate our brand growth in Germany and expand the export business. In doing so, we rely on our strong portfolio of global and local brands and even more intensive cooperation with our retail customers and consumers,” says Peter Giørtz-Carlsen.

For the past eleven years, Markus Mühleisen has held various international management positions with the food group General Mills (including Häagen-Dazs and Knack & Back), most recently as Managing Director for Northern Europe. In this role, he was responsible for the company’s business in the United Kingdom, Germany and Ireland.

Arla Foods’ retail and foodservice revenue in Germany was €1.29 billion in 2017.
