80th Birthday Anton-Wolfgang Graf von Faber-Castell (* June 7, 1941)


His family name is almost synonymous with pencils and colouring pencils. He has been at the helm of the established family business for almost four decades, now in the eighth generation: Anton-Wolfgang Graf von Faber-Castell. Born in Bamberg in 1941, he received a law degree and worked as an investment banker in London and New York for several years before he was brought into the company management by his father at the age of 34. After his father's death in 1978 he became the company’s sole managing director. In 2000 "the Count" finally became chairman of the board of management, when the company is turned into a non-listed stock corporation.

The company was founded in 1761 by the carpenter Kaspar Faber, who began producing "Bleyweißstefften" made of wood and graphite. The pencils became world famous when great-grandson Lothar Faber introduced different degrees of hardness in the 19th century. In 1862, the successful entrepreneur was even raised to the rank of nobility. After the premature death of his only son the continuation of the company was secured by the marriage of his granddaughter Ottilie to Count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdeshausen and the new company and family name Faber-Castell was introduced. Before and after the Second World War, Anton-Wolfgang Faber-Castell's father expanded the company: he added new branches and manufacturing facilities and acquired shareholdings and licenses in almost every continent. His son later carried on this strategy, so that Faber-Castell advances to become the world's largest manufacturer of colouring pencils and pencils. He also advocates more sustainable and environmentally friendly production and compliance with a social charter.

After the death of the company patriarch in 2016 the family inheritance worth several hundred million Euros was passed to his four children. The company has since been managed by CEOs from outside the family for the first time.
