Dr. Günther Findel (1920-2002)
Dr. Günther Findel married Curt Mast’s daughter Annemarie in 1947. He was a passionate doctor and opened his first practice in Wolfenbüttel in 1952. Just like Annemarie, Günther Findel had a particular soft spot for nature. Thanks to his great understanding of natural science, he dedicated himself entirely to his father-in-law’s company in the 1960s and took over the technical management in 1970. From there on, he professionalised the Jägermeister production with his scientific know-how – without altering the recipe.
In addition to his talents in natural science and agriculture, he was also interested in cultural studies and humanities. In 1971, for example, he was one of the founding members of the Society of Friends of the Herzog August Library in Wolfenbüttel and in 1986 he established the Dr. Günther Findel Foundation for the promotion of the sciences.
