Buhler Appoints Macus CFO


Uzwil, Switzerland — Mark Macus is taking on the role of CFO for equipment supplier Bühler Group, replacing Andreas Herzog, who has held the position for 17 years. Marcus, who will move into the position in September, is currently CFO of Vitra Group, but has previous experience working for Buhler.

Macus holds a PhD from the University of St. Gallen and is a certified auditor. His previous experience includes six years at KPMG, three years in corporate controlling of the Holcim Group, and he lead the corporate controlling unit of Bühler for five years. He has been the CFO of the Vitra Group in Birsfelden, Switzerland, since April 2018.

“Mark Macus is the ideal successor for us,” says Bühler CEO Stefan Scheiber. “He possesses vast experience, knows the challenges of the capital goods industry, and is thoroughly familiar with Bühler. We are glad to have found Mark Macus for this task and look forward to welcoming him back.”

“Withdrawing from the CFO position of Bühler after 17 years is an emotional moment for me. Bühler is a unique organization, in which the family spirit is still alive. But the company must renew itself permanently, and this also impacts my own function,” says Herzog. He plans to remain active with the company, devoting time to various board mandates and supporting Bühler in its efforts to develop new business models and its commitment to start-ups. C&ST
