After studying business administration and Chinese in Würzburg, Anders Thomas first worked for various companies in Asia and the United States. He then moved to Finland, where he completed his bachelor's degree at the Helsinki School of Economics and Business Administration. He later gained experience as a commercial manager and managing director in the luxury segment of well-known companies. Since 2011, the Detmold native has been leading the tradition-rich Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg into the future as CEO. "Nymphenburg's core competence lies in pure craftsmanship and in collaboration with contemporary artists and designers. Lifestyle is not our goal. Nymphenburg stands for exceptional objects that are timeless and at the same time leave a cultural imprint in their period - in short, design classics of tomorrow."
