German-born Mirko Köhler has been living in Asia since 2006 and has many years of international sales experience. His career led him from Singapore to Hong Kong, then back to Singapore and now Bangkok. As a trained engineer with Master of Science (MSc) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degrees, he was able to gain extensive experience in the industrial minerals and paper industries. He is currently Asia Pacific regional manager for a German industrial fire protection company. The introduction of complex European technologies into Asian industrial processes are among his expertise. During his studies, Köhler focused on water and wastewater treatment and flue gas cleaning.
“South East Asia has become my second home after 16 years,” said Köhler. “I feel very connected to the people and the different cultures. I would like to use this connection to further expand the sales and partner network of Scheuch Asia Ltd.“
Köhler has been able to hold initial meetings with customers and partners. His primary goal is to be even closer to customers, and this includes further expansion of the service and after-sales departments.
