Sep 11 2017 Read 387 Times

After 26 years as CEO, Dr. Hans-Peter Sieper, founder and president of Elementar Analysensysteme GmbH, will hand the reigns over to his son, Albrecht Sieper, who has already been responsible for marketing and sales as Elementar’s managing director since 2014. Dr. Sieper will now head up the supervisory board of the company.

Elementar was created in 1990 when Dr. Sieper acquired a section of analytical instrumentation technology from Heraeus, a company with a 120 year heritage of technical excellence. Within less than three decades of Dr. Sieper’s investment, Elementar have become a leading global provider of elemental analysers in a host of markets including environmental analysis, QA/QC, energy efficiency and forensics. Elementar now enjoy worldwide success with 8 daughter companies across the globe and a 85% share of their export market in over 80 countries.

Dr Hans-Peter Sieper studied chemistry at Friedrich Schiller University, in Jena. He graduated in Molecular Spectroscopy before spending 45 years working in the analytical instrumentation market with Carl Zeiss, also in Jena, followed by Heraeus and finally, Elementar. He has used his vast knowledge and experience of application, product and development strategy, sales, marketing and finance management to great effect throughout his career and will continue to do so in his new role.

Albrecht Sieper is graduate engineer in mechanical engineering (TU Darmstadt) as well as MBA (Steinbeis Hochschule). His career started at BMW’s R&D Center in Munich with a focus on knowledge management. He has worked in leading positions at Elementar for 13 years in a variety of roles such as R&D, production, marketing, sales and administration where not only did he gain detailed knowledge of each discipline but he also introduced plenty of his own innovative ideas and solution. The change in the managerial generation has been planned for a long time and sets the precondition for the further successful development of Elementar.
