JBL Now In Its Third Generation

When Joachim Böhme founded JBL in Ludwigshafen in 1960, he could only hope that his company would remain in family ownership. When his son, Roland Böhme, took over in 1991, the second generation was assured. Exactly 30 years later, on January 4, 2021, it was time for JBL to enter its third generation with Stella Kaltenmeier-Böhme, Roland Böhme's daughter, at the helm. Her father will assist her as Strategic Managing Director.

Stella Kaltenmeier-Böhme completed her Master's degree in "International SME Management" and then worked for four years in a medium-sized company in Heidelberg. At JBL, she carried out several internships in almost all departments. One of the most important experiences was a further six months in the JBL field service, during which she got to know the retail landscape of the pet industry. She has been running an aquarium since she was a girl and gained her first knowledge of aquaristic research in the rainforest on the JBL Venezuela Expedition in 2016. She is looking forward to expanding this knowledge on the upcoming expedition to Colombia in 2022.

At JBL, expanding digitalisation is at the top of her agenda. She is particularly impressed by the low staff turnover at JBL. Stella Kaltenmeier-Böhme has known a lot of the employees since she was a child and has watched as their careers have developed. Her two brothers have also joined the company as shareholders. The whole JBL team is delighted that JBL is remaining in family ownership.
