Delphy expands its reach to help hortipreneurs in Germany

Delphy, the Dutch knowledge-sharing organisation and service provider for horticulturalists worldwide, has appointed Michael Penzkofer as its news liaison manager in Germany.

Building on its already succesful consulting activities in Germany’s soft fruit, floriculture and fresh produce sectors, Delphy aims to expand its reach in Germany even further with the launch of Delphy Germany.

Delphy’s new liaison manager in Germany, Michael Penzkofer will set up and supervise the team. He has been with Delphy since May 2023 as head of Delphy Germany.

The 38-year old Penzkofer, resident of Augsburg, took his PhD in horticultural sciences at Leibnitz University Hannover. During his studies and his apprenticeship as a gardener, he discovered the great versatility of horticulture.

He developed a keen interest in working with and for plants. At the beginning of his professional career, he therefore focused on plant breeding, as this profession connects all topics around plants. Subsequently, Penzkofer held managerial positions in plant production and cultivation consultancy. His area of expertise is herbs and perennials.
