Harald Striewski – the owner of German motorhome, campervan and caravan manufacturer, Hobby – has been named and honoured as an “Extraordinary Entrepreneur in the Caravaning Industry”.

The award honours the success story of the north German company and was presented at this year’s Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf and it is the first time this particular award has been presented.

Innovations such as the introduction of the automatic reversing system, the development of the cassette toilet, as well as the on-board management system developed by Hobby are key milestones in the caravanning industry, which were brought about by Harald Striewski and Hobby.

“I’m extremely touched and am absolutely thrilled with this praise and recognition for my life’s work,” says Harald Striewski, who founded the company 52 years ago. 

“Harald Striewski understands how important it is to put your heart and soul into designing caravans that meet the needs of customers, more than anyone else. With his extraordinary ideas, huge entrepreneurial spirit and unbelievable creativity, he has been a complete and unparalleled success,” says Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, President & Chief Executive Officer of Messe Düsseldorf, which runs the Caravan Salon each year.
