Stefan Judisch studied business administration in Frankfurt/Main and worked during his entire studies at Metallgesellschaft AG (MG). In so doing, he came into early contact with the world of nonferrous metals. After graduating, his professional career began in 1984, initially in the Central Controlling division of MG. Prior to joining the Swiss Bank Corporation (now UBS) in 1992, Stefan Judisch held various positions for MG in Germany and abroad, including as Managing Director of MG Commodity Corp. in Hamburg, a trading and brokering company for nonferrous metal derivatives.
He developed the global commodity derivatives trading business for UBS, thereby expanding his experience with nonferrous metals into the energy commodities sector.
With the liberalization of continental European energy markets in 1999, he switched to the energy supplier RWE, and for its wholly owned subsidiary, initially developed the European trade and later the global trade of energy resources and other energy-related commodities. In March 2015, he resigned as CEO of RWE Supply & Trading at the age of 56, thereby giving up full-time professional life.
With one job-related interruption, Stefan Judisch has already been a member of the Supervisory Board of Trimet SE for many years. Since June 2015, he has also been a non-executive board member of SUEK PLC.
