Obituary - Joseph Meerpohl
Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Big Dutchman AG in Vechta-calveslage.
With equal parts deep affection and genuine respect, we say goodbye to an extraordinary person and a courageous and visionary businessman.
Under Josef Meerpohl’s leadership and inspired by his exemplary commitment, the Big Dutchman Group succeeded in becoming one of the market leaders in the poultry and pig industry.
Josef was a great role model, combining intense focus with humour and the ability to motivate and encourage all those around him. He was always very approachable and happy to share his invaluable experience, but also never held back from sounding a note of caution when he felt it was needed.
Josef Meerpohl will be remembered throughout our industry – and beyond – with gratitude and admiration, as an entrepreneurial personality who was dedicated to the Big Dutchman Group and its people.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to his family and many friends.
