New chairmanship of the Board of Trustees at Doemens

Dr. Rudolf Michel was elected Chairman of the Board of Trustees at the Doemens Academy in February 2019.

He has been responsible for the development department for beverage and beer applications at the GEA technology group in Kitzingen since 2015.

Michel, himself a trained brewer and maltster, studied brewing and beverage technology at the Technical University of Munich in Freising-Weihenstephan and did his doctorate on “the separation mechanisms of hot trub in a whirlpool”. Ever since he began his academic career, teaching has been of great importance to him.

As Chairman of the Board of Trustees he is committing himself to promoting an intensive exchange between the trainees and the technology company. Michel wants to pursue Düsseldorf-based company's approach of bringing industry leaders, future talent and the industry together. In addition, the Board of Trustees promotes the practical relevance and international orientation of teaching, which has been given even better training conditions by the new building project “Doemens 2020” in Gräfelfing. The Doemens school is already working with the brewery school in Wuhan, China, and with the World Brewing Academy in Chicago, USA.
