We recently communicated that our current managing director, Wolf Edmayr, would be leaving BKB at the end of December 2019. The board immediately embarked on a search to find a replacement for Wolf.
This has been an extremely thorough and transparent process in which both internal and external candidates were evaluated. We are thrilled to announce that we have reached an agreement with Johan Stumpf who will commence as managing director of BKB on 1 February 2020.
Johan holds B.Eng (Industrial) (Cum Laude), B.Eng (Hons) (Industrial) and MBA (Cum Laude) degrees from the University of Pretoria, and has executive management experience in the agricultural and manufacturing sectors. He is currently a member of the JSE listed packaging company Mpact Ltd’s executive committee, and is responsible for the paper packaging business within Mpact.
Prior to joining Mpact, he was group managing director of the Klein Karoo Group, as well as group managing director of the Sundays River Citrus Company, both industry leaders in their respective agricultural sectors. In the early stages of his career, he occupied various operational management roles, including a stint at the then South African Breweries. – Press release, BKB
