Andreas Streubig, born on 14 May 1968, joined the Otto Group (Hamburg) in 1993 after taking his degree in mathematics. 
His career was characterised by four very different stages – after managing various IT-related projects within the Sales department such as 'New Shop Process' and 'Call Center Management', he reorganised the processes and structures of various group companies as a Senior Manager in 'Internal Corporate Consulting' from 2001 onwards, and was also in charge for operational project control of the business process optimisation at Group Head Office in Hamburg.
His next position was Head of 'Import Control', where he was responsible from the beginning of 2005 for control of the worldwide importing organisation of the Otto Group in the most important source markets. He then became Head of "Environment and Social Policy" in June 2007, where he controlles the Group's activities in the field of 'Corporate Responsibility'. 
Andreas Streubig has been a guest speaker at various events in the textile and CR environment, e.g. at the German Retail Convention and the NRF convention in New York, and chairs the working group on "Sustainability in Logistics" of the Hamburg Logistics Initiative.
