With Steffen Walter as the New Co-CEO, the GBA Laboratory Group Initiates the Process of Transferring Leadership

The management, the advisory board, and the partners of the GBA Laboratory Group are pleased to announce today that the management team has been strengthened even further. Starting January 2018, Steffen Walter, as Co-CEO of GBA Holding GmbH, is responsible for the Pharmaceutical and Environmental Divisions and will be coordinating the implementation of the strategy for growth and international expansion in both of these fields, as well as the administration, purchasing, HR, and digitalization.


With his long-term managerial experience in the field, he not only enhances the existing management team, but as Co-CEO, he also steps in as the successor to Manfred Giesecke, who had previously been serving as the sole CEO.

Having graduated from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) with a degree in Business & Engineering (Dipl.-Wirtschaftsingenieur), Steffen Walter began his career as a managerial assistant at the German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA). He has been involved in the laboratory and TIC field since 2001. His start as the assistant to the board of directors at Institut Fresenius was followed up by positions of leadership within the SGS Group in Germany. In 2007 he assumed the responsibility for the operational and commercial activities concerning the laboratories, inspection, and certification in the following fields: non-food, food, electrics & electronics, and automotive. Before switching to the GBA Laboratory Group, he served as General Manager and a member of the European Management Board for the Eurofins Food Division in Germany and Turkey for several years.

We are looking forward to working together with Steffen Walter and we would like to wish him a warm welcome to the company.
