Kleffmann Group strengthens APAC/Australia operations

Kleffmann Group is pleased to announce strong growth in its new organization structure in Asia-Pacific region in response to rising orders and revenues. The Group’s business is showing a double-digit increase in 2017 compared to the previous year both for AMIS (Agricultural Marketing Information System) panels and Ad hoc research.

Markets in the region are now emerging strongly, mainly China and India which have become particularly important. Additional branches in Thailand and Vietnam were established in 2016 and strengthen KG’s APAC presence. The enlarged team allows Kleffmann Group to satisfy the increasing demand.

The importance of the APAC region is further underlined by the fact that the Top Management of Kleffmann Group support the management of regional as well as international clients – taking care of the constantly growing client networks. Burkhard Kleffmann, CEO, points out: “Our goal is to further strengthen our operations in this fast-developing region. Supported by a team of Senior professionals I am confident that our positive business development will continue and local teams will grow their skills and competencies.”

To further strengthen its experiences in digitalization, Goran Jovcevski has taken on his responsibility as Managing Director for Kleffmann Group in Australia in June 2017. His experience in direct marketing and digitalization as well as in agriculture provides the team with great possibilities to grow the business to new levels. “We are working on innovative ways to simplify the data collection from farmers,” Goran Jovcevski says.

Phumin Chesdmethee, who has previously worked as a Research Director for GfK Thailand Ltd. and for TNS Research International in several roles, latest as a Country lead for Innovation Research, is joining Kleffmann Group as the new Regional Sales head for Ad hoc research. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree of International Business Studies at the Auckland Institute of Studies, New Zealand. Phumin Chesdmethee has broad experiences in customized research and has specialized in mobile and internet research.

He will join Kleffmann on 1st October 2017 and will be located at Bangkok, Thailand, where he will also strengthen Kleffmann’s Thai team. Local organizations in Vietnam, Philippines and India have increased their Project Management capabilities mainly to ensure quality and timelines in the syndicated AMIS business.

“These are exciting times for Kleffmann in the APAC/Australian region”, says Burkhard Kleffmann.
