Martin Ziegelbäck, CEO, SAATBAU Preisgut GmbH
Since 2013, Dr. Martin Ziegelbäck has been the CEO of SAATBAU Preisgut GmbH, part of the SAATBAU Group, and has full responsibility for all risk management and trading businesses.
He specializes in commodity market analysis, product development and hedging strategies. Before he tackled the task to structure an innovative risk management company in the agricultural sector, he was engaged in several agricultural projects. Because Martin runs his own farm in Austria, he fully understands all operational challenges in farming and the needs of financial risk control.
He is educated in technical engineering, agricultural grain and livestock production, and graduated in Business Economics. In his dissertation at University of Applied Life Sciences, Vienna, he discussed hedging on agricultural futures markets and inherent residual risks.
