Weddigen von Knapp

Head of Business Innovation

Julius is an economist, ex-corporate consultant and has been working for the medium-sized chemical distributor Stockmeier since 2017. In his current role as Head of Corporate Development and Business Innovation, his team is responsible for several transformation projects. To make the Stockmeier Group fit for digital product experiences, he built a customer service portal and laid the foundations in data, organisation and technology for a product information management system, among other things. The exchange of best practices among small and medium-sized enterprises is particularly close to his heart. That’s why there are various cooperations with start-ups and grown-ups that have emerged from the Founders Foundation.
