Administrative Board and Managing Directors of PCC SE

Waldemar Preussner
Chairman of the Administrative Board of PCC SE

Waldemar Preussner

Waldemar Preussner (59) is the founder of the PCC Group. At the beginning of the 1990s, the experienced commodities trading manager took the chance of setting up his own business. His objective was to make the most of the opportunities arising from the opening markets of Eastern Europe, markets that he already knew very well. Hence, in October 1993, he established the nucleus of today’s PCC Group: Petro Carbo Chem Rohstoffhandelsgesellschaft mbH (today PCC Trade & Services GmbH) headquartered in Duisburg-Homberg, very close to the Group’s current head office. 1998 saw the carve-out of the holding company PCC AG, and in 2007 its corporate form was changed to that of a European corporation (Societas Europaea), becoming today’s PCC SE. Waldemar Preussner is the sole shareholder of PCC SE and is Chairman of its Administrative Board. He also holds a number of supervisory board mandates within the PCC Group.
