Volker Brück has been appointed new Sales Director of Karlsruhe (Germany) based Romaco Pharmatechnik GmbH. He will in future be responsible for marketing the Romaco Noack and Romaco Siebler product lines.
Volker Brück (aged 51) took over as new Sales Director of Karlsruhe (Germany) based Romaco Pharmatechnik GmbH in July 2019. He is responsible in his new role for international marketing of the single-source supplier’s Romaco Noack and Romaco Siebler product lines, including blister, strip and rigid tube filling solutions which are designed, assembled and commercially supported at the Romaco facility in Karlsruhe.
Volker Brück was born and bred in Dusseldorf. After graduating in economics and business administration from the Universities of Bonn and Duisburg, he embarked on a professional career in sales at a food manufacturer operating worldwide. He gained significant managerial experience there as VP Sales & Marketing and spent eight years as a Member of the Board before founding Encotecc GmbH in 2010. From then on, as a self-employed entrepreneur and sales representative, Volker Brück advised European and North American producers of packaging materials and technology. Prior to joining Romaco, he coordinated the development and market launch of a new filter paper for tea bags on behalf of a US paper group, amongst other things setting up a global network of agents.
“We particularly value Mr. Brück’s practical experience and cosmopolitan outlook”, emphasised Markus Regner, Managing Director Romaco Pharmatechnik GmbH. “He has worked in the industry for many years now and is very open to new ideas. His drive and enthusiasm inspire those around him and his knowledge of the market is immense. As a former professional handball player, he has tremendous willpower and team spirit – exactly what Romaco needs to be a strong contender in the international league table.”
“Romaco has grown at a rapid pace over the last few years and come a long way from where the company began. It’s a process that is still ongoing and leaves me plenty of margin for play”, commented Volker Brück, Sales Director Romaco Pharmatechnik GmbH. “I’m very much looking forward to becoming proactively involved in Romaco’s realignment in my new position. On the sales side, my prime goal will be to put our hidden champion qualities into the spotlight, in other words harness our forces effectively and expand the Romaco brand’s global reach.”
