We are a dedicated team of industry professionals with over 40 years of experience from a wide variety of fields. Our team consists of multiple engineers from the fields of electrical and mechanical engineering, software development, with specializations in battery development, energy efficiency, and machine learning. Industrial design, energy economics, marketing, and other, equally important industries round out our team.
It’s the diversity in a professional experience that has helped us so far in the development of this ambitious project. This team was set up from within a group of friends, some of whom studied and worked together, meaning that we were aware of our flaws and mannerisms.
Stephan has an MSc in Industrial Engineering and worked in automotive and oil & gas before venturing into renewable energy. Previous ventures include an automated solar container system for oil & gas companies and a energy infrastructure consultancy. Stephan manages CraftStrom together with his brother, Michael.
Michael (BA, MBA), Stephan’s brother, is a trained product designer, who founded and sold a company that manufactures fitness products. It was there that he garnered first experiences in production planning, logistics, etc, as he manufactured in China. He is now responsible for the design, production, testing and certification of Li-Ion batteries used in public charger-kiosks, which he designed for NRG. His experiences and contacts are vital for the production of our smart hardware products.
Christian is a lawyer by trade (PhD), but worked as a consultant in the oil&gas business, where he met Stephan. They worked together in strategy consulting and M&A, where they fast became friends. Christian heads the CraftStrom holding company. Not only is he vital on the strategic side, but he also handles our IP and general legal side.
