Stefano Maifredi – External Manufacturing Production Leader

Whatever assignment you have or job you do, there is only one element which is constant: change!

My name is Stefano. I graduated from the Politecnico di Milano in Chemical Engineering, with the clear objective to use my university degree to also have fun!

I’ve been with Dow for over 13 years, holding many roles and responsibilities within production, and serving different businesses. I started as an improvement engineer at Dow Agrosciences, running improvements and optimization projects, implementing the Dow process and Environment, Health & Safety standards. Later on I joined the Dow Formulated System business as production engineer, with extended responsibilities to support an external manufacturing activity. I then moved into a newly acquired plant as Operations Leader, being accountable for the safe and efficient manufacture of Adhesives for our Flexible Packaging Adhesives Business. After this experience, I rejoined Dow Agrosciences, managing all our contract manufacturing activities for the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions, and relocated with my family to our EMEAI headquarters in Switzerland.

Whatever assignment you have or job you do, there is only one element which is constant: change!

Every day brings a new challenge, every day comes with new opportunities to improve and change the status quo, that’s what I’ve learnt during my career at Dow.
