Obit­u­ary - Joseph Meer­pohl

The Poultry Bulletin - - CONTENTS -

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.
