Chief Executive Officer,
Wolfgang was hired as CEO for the newly founded Degussa Goldhandel GmbH in November 2011. Before setting up the new company under that well-known historic brand name, he worked for nearly seven years at Heraeus as Head of Sales and Marketing, and over 20 years at Dresdner Bank in Frankfurt, at the end as Head of Precious Metals and Commodities Trading. Within 18 months, Degussa, which is owned by one of the wealthiest German families, has become one of the leading European precious metal trading companies for physical investment in metal. The company buys and sells investment products through a rapidly growing branch network in Germany and Switzerland, and through a very active online shop. During the course of this year, the company has also expanded into the purchase of gold scrap and the numismatics business. The company has now more than 70 employees and, at the beginning of July 2013, took over the smaller German gold trading company SilviOr, a company that specialises in the storage of precious metals for customers
