Dear partners, clients, and friends of ADT,

on 01.01.2021, Mr. Yves Tohermes succeeded Dr Ferdinand Schmitt as the new Managing Director of ADT Project Consulting GmbH. Dr Schmitt is leaving ADT after more than 25 years of successful work as Managing Director to pursue new professional challenges.

We would like to thank Dr Ferdinand Schmitt for his many years of commitment and passion in which he significantly contributed to the company’s success. Dr Schmitt initially developed ADT from a two-person company into an international consulting company with project offices in Eastern-Europe, Africa, and Asia, connecting global expertise on agriculture value chains.

Yves Tohermes successfully completed his studies in agricultural sciences and agricultural economics at the Georg-August University of Göttingen and Stellenbosch University, before starting his professional career as Assistant to the Management and Manager for Market Relations & Sustainability at the German Feed Association (DVT). Mr. Tohermes joined the international project management team at ADT in 2019.

“I am very much looking forward to the new challenge at ADT and to continue working with our young, highly motivated and quick-witted team. The international work in agricultural value chains, in cooperation with the German animal breeders’ associations, gives me great pleasure and I am sure that the ADT will continue to set new highlights“, says Yves Tohermes.

Mr. Yves Tohermes and the entire team of ADT Project Consulting GmbH are looking forward to further cooperation with you.
