Dr. Axel Göhler is representative of the 3rd generation running the traditional German family malting business. His grandfather Max Göhler started the company in the last century. His father turned it into a leading German malt manufacturer over the course of more than 40 years. In 2014, Göhler took over the management of the family business from his older brother.
Dr. Göhler pursued management studies in the US, Switzerland, and in Germany. He received a doctorate degree from St. Gall University in Switzerland. He researched in international business and wrote his doctoral thesis on “The Success of German Family Breweries”. For ten years, Göhler worked as strategy consultant for the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). Afterwards, he managed his own strategy consulting firm in Hamburg together with partners.
Dr. Göhler is married and enjoys nature, hunting, German short hair dogs, Arabian horses, and – last but not least – the family business with its more than 100 year old tradition.
