Stiebel Eltron USA announces the passing of its founder and president, Mr. Frank Stiebel

Stiebel Eltron USA Founder Frank Stiebel
November 8, 1957 – May 7, 2024

With profound sadness, Stiebel Eltron USA announces the passing of its founder and president, Frank Stiebel.

Born November 8th, 1957 in Göttingen, Germany, Frank came to Massachusetts in 1981 to study architecture and design at Hampshire College. After his daughter was born, Frank made Northampton, Massachusetts his permanent home. In 1990 he established Stiebel Eltron, Inc, the U.S. division of the company his father founded in Germany in 1924, to bring the brand’s world-renowned products and unrelenting focus on quality, innovation, and customer service to the western hemisphere. Over the years, Frank grew Stiebel Eltron USA to 46 employees, establishing a strong category presence, including category leadership, throughout the U.S., Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

While running Stiebel Eltron USA, Frank continued as co-owner of the family-owned Stiebel Eltron Group. He was a member of the Supervisory Board of the Stiebel Eltron Group, constantly working on the strategic orientation of the company worldwide to create renewable energy products.

Frank was quirky, thoughtful, and philanthropic, with a dry but hilarious sense of humor. He embodied an interesting mix of business professionalism and down to earth practicality — attributes that served him well while he championed Stiebel Eltron USA in particular, and Stiebel Eltron world-wide, as the more intelligent, more sustainable alternative. Frank was passionate about many things, including zeppelins, alternative energy, sci-fi, and psychedelic music. Frank is profoundly missed by his loving family, friends, and staff—many of whom with long-standing, decades-long relationships.

The Board of Directors of the worldwide Stiebel Eltron Group, in concert with Frank’s wishes, appointed Mr. Jonathan Walsh, previously vice president, to the role of president. Having worked closely with Frank for many years, Jonathan is committed to advancing the goals and continuing the values established under Frank’s leadership.

Stiebel Eltron reported that the company’s turnover in 2017 broke through the 500-million-euro mark for the first time in the company’s 93-year history. The parent company is headquartered in Holzminden, Germany with 24 daughter companies throughout the world. Founded in 1924 by Dr Theodor Stiebel, the company is privately held by his sons, Frank & Ulrich Stiebel.

“This is a fantastic success of which we are very proud,” said managing director Dr Nicholas Matten. The growth occurred in all business units, including the renewable energy division with heat-pump heating systems and air-conditioning systems, and the water-heating division with instantaneous water heaters, small and floor-standing storage heaters. “What’s more, we experienced growth in both our home market in Germany and internationally,” said Dr Matten.
