Berlin. ALBA Services Holding (ASH) is restructuring its management team. By 1 January 2022 at the latest, Sebastiaan Krol will assume leadership of the company together with CFO Melanie Freytag. After a few weeks, when his successor has settled in, the current CEO Markus Müller-Drexel will switch completely to the new dual system "Interseroh+", which, together with partners, is fundamentally developing the circular economy for packaging.
Sebastiaan Krol brings 15 years of management experience from the B2B services sector. Previously, he was CEO of the development consultancy Modis AG, which belongs to the globally active Adecco Group. Here, he merged four companies into one, promoted digitalisation and modernised the HR department.
Previously, the 41-year-old native Dutchman had studied engineering in Hamburg with a focus on aircraft systems technology. Afterwards, the engineering graduate worked for twelve years in Germany for the French technology consulting company Altran. Here he reorganised the structure of the sales department and other departments and started a change process for the entire company. By the end of his tenure, he was in charge of all five of Altran's industrial divisions.
For the coming years, the strategy is clearly focused on innovation and growth, especially by taking advantage of digitalisation opportunities. In addition to the profit orientation of the existing units, new business units are developing from those projects that are in the innovation pipeline: for a future without waste.
