Sustainability as a corporate goal

The management

Thomas Merten was appointed managing director of GUTMANN ALUMINIUM DRAHT (GAD) in May 2018.

Having trained as a toolmaker and completed a degree in manufacturing technology in 1993, Thomas Merten has gained extensive experience as a sustainability consultant and project manager. In 1996 he founded his own company, Trifolium - Beratungsgesellschaft mbH, which advises on future-focused business models and sustainable structures and processes across a wide range of sectors as well as on environmental and corporate social responsibility. For many years, he was a consultant and training provider to companies in the Gutmann Group.

For GAD as a learning organisation, the task-based delegation of responsibility and skills-based staff autonomy is geared towards the kind of future-proofed process structures that are becoming increasingly important. Thomas Merten intends to continue this organisational focus, embedding it firmly and robustly across all our structures and processes.
