Business Management univativ GmbH

Working on projects instead of handling orders, getting involved in everyday practice instead of frying burgers, acquiring new contacts instead of counting the minutes until closing time: This was the idea that motivated Martin Ilg, Henning Loof and Olaf Kempin to found univativ in 1998. Still students at that time at the Technical University Darmstadt, the three soon-to-be industrial engineers initially just wanted to put this concept into practice for themselves and other students. And what a success it was! Ever since then, in fact, thousands of ambitious entry-level employees have taken advantage of the offer for themselves by successfully starting their professional careers at, and with univativ. The univativ GmbH is currently managed by Frithjof Schönig and Gottfried Zaby.
