Kleffmann Group Appoints New Managing Director for Australia

Kleffmann Group has announced that Goran Jovcevski will become the new Managing Director for Kleffmann Group’s Australian operation. Located in the Melbourne head office, Jovcevski brings a wealth of experience in the agricultural sector (previously working with Nufarm and Syngenta) and significant experience in the direct marketing/digitalization sector. His last position was Marketing Manager, Asia Pacific at Hexagon Geospital.

With Jovcevski, Kleffmann Group will not only focus on sophisticated market research for panels (syndicated) and Ad Hoc research projects, but will also use the opportunity to launch a new digitalized product portfolio in the Australian market.

“Kleffmann Group Australia will enter a new phase now, which is to become an interactive partner for customers and farmers,” Burkhard Kleffmann, CEO of Kleffmann Group, pointed out.

“I am delighted to start this challenge with Kleffmann Group and it’s a pleasure to have the opportunity to manage and organize a young, sophisticated team to deliver what our customers need,” Jovcevski added.
