News Hasso von Pogrell is European Bioplastics‘ New Managing Director Since March 2009 Hasso von Pogrell is the new Managing Director of European Bioplastics, the association of the European bioplastics industry. Born in Brazil, educated in Portugal, the United States and Germany, Mr. von Pogrell holds a degree in economics from the University of Cologne. During the last 14 years he has held leading positions in associations of the German construction, retail and optical industry.

He brings several years of managing experience in stakeholder associations and suits that job perfectly“, said Andy Sweetman, newly elected Chairman of European Bioplastics. Now, after nearly 150 days in the new job Hasso von Pogrell adds: “It‘s a big pleasure and an honour for me to take a leading role in the team of European Bioplastics.
