Klaus Stojentin is new President of Sales for Western Europe for GEA Refrigeration Technologies

Klaus Stojentin, born in 1967, began in his new position on 1 July 2013 as President of Sales for Western Europe for GEA Refrigeration Technologies. He reports directly to Jean-Michel Daviaud, Vice President for Country Sales. Stojentin began his career in GEA Group ten years ago, as Sales Director for the region of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, for the earlier company GEA Grasso GmbH (now GEA Refrigeration Germany GmbH). From 2008 to 2011 he was active at this company as Sales and Marketing Director and supported the Country Sales Organization of GEA Refrigeration Technologies throughout the world. When GEA Refrigeration Technologies in 2011 took over the company GEA Bock GmbH in Frickenhausen (Germany; earlier name of the company: Bock Kältemaschinen GmbH), he became one of the three General Managers of the new subsidiary, and he played a key role in implementing integration of the company and its product portfolio into the GEA Segment for refrigeration.

As successor to Klaus Stojentin, Kröger will work in the company top management together with Ralf Eichentopf and Thies Hachfeld, who in his dual function also serves as President for Components at GEA Refrigeration Germany GmbH. Jan Kröger’s last assignment was as General Manager for the company Hafner-Muschler in Balingen (Germany), a plant-systems contractor specializing in industrial and commercial refrigeration technology. The focus of his work there was on product innovation and the introduction of industrial structures. Jan Kröger, with a degree in mechanical engineering, also brings international experience in business development from his activities at York (BKT) and for Epta Group, in Milan (Italy).
