Mirko Köh­ler will be­come Scheuch Asi­a’s Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor in mid-June 2021. He will take over from Jan Eike Gra­eff, who has suc­cess­fully man­aged Scheuch Asia since 2019. Gra­eff is re­turn­ing to Ger­many and will be ac­tive in the field of wind power plants in the fu­ture.

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.
