"A unique lifetime achievement"

German President Professor Dr. Horst Köhler

KARL STORZ employs 8000 women and men. This impressive number is a testimony to the enormous growth of the family company established in 1945 and makes one wonder about who is behind this development, bearing entrepreneurial responsibility.

Professor Dr. George Berci

Contents

Her long and successful professional life started in a small workshop alongside her father and company founder, Dr. med. h. c. Karl Storz, in the late 1950s. Over the next six decades, Sybill Storz shaped the family company using a sustainable growth and internationalization strategy. Through her personal commitment, sure instinct for trends, and impressive expertise, Sybill Storz developed her parents’ company into an innovative and global quality supplier and established the company as a partner to medicine worldwide.

Both the company and Sybill Storz individually stand for tradition, integrity, and the future. In January 2019, shortly before the company’s 75-year anniversary in 2020, Sybill Storz passed on company management to her son, Karl-Christian Storz. These important changes and events were an opportune time for Sybill Storz to take a look back, but also into the future, with a biography.
