Hi, I am Stephen B. Harrison, Managing Director at sbh4.
My professional background extends over 30 years. Of those years, 16 were in the UK with The BOC Group plc, a FTSE 100 company. More recently, I worked for 10 years in Munich with Linde AG, a DAX30 organisation. As a result of this international experience, I am bilingual in English and German and I have dual nationality.
For more than half of my career, I have championed and led a niche Specialty Gases business within these two Industrial Gases giants. So, I have experienced the big corporate environment and the more intimate small firm culture that thrived in the specialties division.
Since 2017, I have been running my own consulting practice at sbh4 and I am also the principal, Germany at Nexant Energy & Chemicals Advisory – responsible for consulting activities in the DACH region.
I maintain close contact with the industrial gases sector through my work with gasworld & H2 View. I write for both of these leading trade publications and I am also a member of the gasworld editorial advisory board.
In 2019 my wife, Gundula Harrison, also joined sbh4 to extend our marketing services capacity. She has German, Chinese and English language skills and a wealth of experience at DAX 30 automotive and industrial companies and several Mittelstand organisations. Your communications and marketing projects will shine with her input.
Since the beginning of 2021, Nadra Mahmoudi has joined the sbh4 consulting team as an associate. Nadra has a rich pedigree in power management and renewables in Algeria. North Africa has significant potential for renewable wind and solar power generation and may become a renewable hydrogen export hub to Europe. We are delighted to have Nadra as a key member of the sbh4 team.
In June of 2021, Hamid Yousefi joined the sbh4 consulting team as an Associate Consultant. Hamid is a highly experienced reservoir engineer and is using his geological expertise to support CCUS and underground hydrogen gas storage and production projects. Beyond that, his technical expertise and Oil and Gas sector background is being applied to broader clean energy and decarbonisation themes. It is an honour to have Hamid on board at sbh4.
In the summer of 2021, Allegra Cresswell-Turner will be supporting the sbh4 consulting team as an intern. Allegra is committed to pursuing a career in renewables. She is an international languages and communications specialist and will support multiple projects with technical writing, translation, report preparation and PR activities. We are delighted to welcome Allegra to the sbh4 team.
We have an extensive network of experienced & expert energy & chemicals sector consultants who stand ready to support a broad range of market intelligence, technology evaluation, M&A transaction support, due diligence and investment analysis projects worldwide.
