Management Board

We'd like to give you a peek into our management board and introduce you to our managing director and management team.

Mäurer & Wirtz is led by Stephan Kemen as Managing Director and Dr Hermann Wirtz as Managing Partner.

Stephan Kemen has been Managing Director at Mäurer & Wirtz since March 2020. He joined the family business as early as 2014, as Global Brand Manager for the Baldessarini brand. After just three years, the now 37-year-old was responsible for overall global responsibility for all Mäurer & Wirtz own and licensed brands, initially as Director Brand Management and finally as Chief Marketing Officer.

"During this time he and his teams have made a major contribution to the successful development of MÄURER & WIRTZ's license and private label portfolio. Above all, the visible further development of the two own brands 4711 and TABAC bear his signature," says Dr. Hermann Wirtz, who will continue to act as managing partner at MÄURER & WIRTZ.

In addition to Stephan Kemen, our management team consists of five other members.
