Stefan has spent more than 25 years in the chemical, plastics and downstream processing industry, including several years working in Asia, France and the US. In his last industry-assignment he was bottom line responsible for the international business of a leading rigid film producer. In 2008 Stefan decided to set up his own consulting business. For 13 years now Stefan has supported companies find the right solutions for their challenges, with a focus on corporate management, leadership, coaching and strategy development, innovation management and succession planning for medium sized private companies. Stefan combines strategic thinking with his profound experience in managing organisations and providing leadership for people.
In Brussels he is working for VinylPlus, the voluntary commitment to sustainable development of the European PVC industry, his main focus is the organisation of circularity projects, the launch of a sustainability label and the strategic direction setting with the 2030 programme.
Stefan is convinced that a business strategy focused on sustainable development is the key success factor for the future of companies.
“A consultant might have an established network and profound experience for successfully consulting business leaders. But in a more and more complex and challenging environment of new regulation, highly competitive markets, technological disruption and digital transformation, his ability to collaborate with others will make him really effective and valuable. For me SGA not only offers a clear and complete, scientific theory paired with broad practical experience, but also a network of top-class experts that allows me to widen my own industry perspective and helps me deliver even better results for my customers.”
