Management

Strong leadership for a successful business.

After successfully completing his physics studies at the University of Duisburg, Dr. Tomas Sterkenburgh entered the family business SAUERESSIG in 1997. As head of the SAUERESSIG Design Studio, among others, he was able to push essential developments within the company and responsible for the success of the branch in Mönchengladbach for ten years.

Ten years later, Dr. Sterkenburgh was appointed Group Manager of the entire SAUERESSIG Group. With a focus on the structural expansion of all business units – from finance, sales and production to human resources, IT and research & development – he was able to decisively advance the growth of the company. Thanks to his analytical and human skills, he was able to build a strong leadership team that effectively exploits synergies and supports the company in a goal-oriented manner. Thus Dr. Sterkenburgh linked a multitude of projects and led the group of companies to sustainable success. Since 2010, Dr. Tomas Sterkenburgh has also been responsible for the rotogravure and engineering divisions.

Under his leadership, the individual companies of the group grew together to form a strong, international network. This network is valued by customers and partners around the world for its exceptional quality and comprehensive service.
Today, Dr. Tomas Sterkenburgh is responsible for activities at a total of 13 international locations in Europe, USA and the Middle East.
